Peter Nygård anti-aging guru draws a crowd at WSCS2012

Who is Peter Nygård?

A few days ago at the World Stem Cell Summit prior to the awards dinner there was a social gathering. This kind of thing is usually a good opportunity for more dialogue.

When I got there I noticed two very famous people having what appeared to be an intense meeting of the minds on stem cells and aging.

There stood fashion designer Peter Nygård (middle) and anti-aging guru Aubrey de Grey (to the right with ponytail) having this discussion.

With Peter Nygård were a bunch of models too. It was quite a sight. See another picture below–hat tip to Kelly Hills for this shot.

Nygård is reportedly very interested in the use of stem cells for anti-aging treatments.
