Peter Thiel has poured hundreds of thousands of dollars into the research activities of gerontologist Aubrey de Grey who is on a mission to convince the world to embrace the idea that aging in the traditional manner is not an inevitability.

Agree with Thiel on this, from the same article:

Speaking at the conference on Thursday, Thiel said he believes "there's a lot that can be done" and his major concern is that science is "just not trying hard enough." He said he believes there is a "cultural problem" in that investors are biased against taking too much risk in science and opt for small rewards instead of big breakthroughs.
