The man who will help you live for 1,000 years

Abstract:
What about cancer, a disease of uncontrolled cell growth? Answer: use nanotechnology to design molecular "Swiss army knives" to "unscrew" cancer-cell surface barriers to oncology drugs. Better still: delete the gene for telomerase, the enzyme that enables cellular division in the first place.

And how about hardened arteries and weakened ligaments caused by so-called cross-linking extracellular proteins? Answer: after discovering a hyphenation-reducer, inject safe chemical agents that break apart the disease-causing links or use nanotechnology to design targeted "molecular buzzsaws".
