Start-up investor Li Jiang just turned 30, and now he can’t stop thinking about his own mortality.
For Jiang, who’s based in San Francisco, living longer isn’t just about eating healthy and exercising regularly. Last month, he cryogenically froze his stem cells, in the hopes of someday injecting them back into his body.
Jiang is one of the earliest testers of Forever Labs, which extracts and stores young adults’ stem cells to potentially combat age-related illnesses like arthritis and heart disease. The company has the ambitious plan to counter “aging itself.”
