Instead of the Topical issue of the week I am recommending this Ted Talk professor Aubrey de Grey is a crazy looking chap with a crazy sounding idea- that we can end ageing and achieve immortality. However his ideas do have merit and have been taken seriously. They were recently discussed in the BMJ (British Medical Journal) This would be an interesting topic in an interview if asked about what the future of medicine holds / what excites you most about the future of medicine e.t.c.
