IABG was established by Denham Harman, in 1985. Starting in New York City the IABG has held a congress at regular intervals. At the point when the meeting year of the IABG harmonizes with that of the International Association of Gerontology (IAG), the IABG meeting is held only before that of the IAG (except for the congress 2005). With the exception of the first and third congresses, the procedures have been distributed. The reason for the IABG is to make the overall population more mindful of the capability of biomedical maturing exploration to expand the range of solid beneficial life and to diminish the social and monetary issues of age; and advance more prominent correspondence among the overall group of people occupied with biomedical maturing research.

A few speakers–John Harris, Arthur Caplan, Steven N. Austad, Jay Olshansky, Gregory Stock, and John Davis–addressed different moral issues raised by the possibility of moderating maturing and augmenting the human lifespan. In spite of the fact that life-expansion morals is new, certain issues and lines of contention are starting to come to fruition, and the speakers regularly tended to comparable issues in comparative ways. Every one of the speakers fell inside the "prolongevist" camp, protecting life-augmentation against different good complaints. The vast majority of the speakers tended to specific issues; John Harris gave a diagram and structure to examination.Read More»
