On Immortality: Siddhartha Mukherjee and Elizabeth Kolbert with Marcelo Gleiser

We live in an age when geneticists are working to advance our life span and improve our quality of life—but are we also inadvertently engineering the sixth mass extinction in the Earth’s history?

Join physician and Pulitzer Prize-winning author Siddhartha Mukherjee (The Emperor of All Maladies) and fellow Pulitzer winner Elizabeth Kolbert (The Sixth Extinction) for a fascinating dialogue on life and mortality, from the human to the planetary scale, moderated by Dartmouth theoretical physicist Marcelo Gleiser. Will living longer lives redefine what it means to be human, and how much will it matter if our planet itself is in peril?
