I discussed Liz Parrish and BioViva in October of last year. While there has since been a great deal of skepticism surrounding Ms. Parrish’s self-experimentation as well as scientific credentials, I am still very interested in her approach (in particular, getting treated in developing countries so as to escape US regulations). She could really help speed up scientific progress. Moreover, anti-aging work (especially in regards to telomerase) has the potential to help hair loss sufferers too.
BioViva and Sierra Sciences

- Also in May, Bill and Liz co-presented at this year’s 10x Medical Device Conference:
Liz Parrish Visits Russia
- Most surprising of all, in June Liz went to Russia and received more publicity than she did in any other country this year. I like this quote from the Russian visit summary page on BioViva’s site:

There are quite a few videos of Liz’s numerous presentations in Russia on youtube. Here are some highlights:
- The most popular one with almost 100k views:
- An interview on Russian TV:
- It really got out of hand in Russia and Liz became a glamour girl:
There is a chance that this company might end up being one of the craziest scams that the biotech world has ever witnessed, but it is nevertheless great to see the popularity of ant-aging treatments in Russia. The country is the only one besides the US to have its own Cryonics facility.
