Dr. Anca Selariu is an inter-disciplinary biomedical scientist, philologist and incurable optimist. She shares a vision for an inter-galactic humanity within the next thousand years, and sees each human being alive today as a precious resource to realize this potential. She has been dedicating her efforts to three causes: 1) creating human bio-enhancements and anti-aging therapies using ALL interdisciplinary knowledge and tools available, which will allow humanity to keep up and co-evolve with its own brain products; 2) educating the world on mental flexibility, so that prejudice, fear and discrimination become obsolete; 3) help design an ergonomic habitat for the far-future humanity, both on and above Terra. She believes that our collective mind will always seek to conquer the impossible, and we owe the future humans the best of what we can do today.
She has twelve years of biomedical research in herpesviruses and transmissible spongiform encephalopathies, and three years in cGMP project management and business development. She earned her PhD at Rutgers NJ, where she developed an alternative vaccine for chickenpox and shingles. Her education includes a Bachelor’s degree in Biochemistry and another in Philology, as well as courses in astrobiology, psychology, criminology, nutrition, etc. She is a founding member of the Future of Thought Consortium, and a member of the Association for the Advancement of Artificial Intelligence (AAAI), Society for Neuroscience (SfN), American Society for Microbiology (ASM), and Eastern Psychology Association (EPA).
In her spare time, she enjoys creative writing, painting, maintaining a healthy mind-body connection and attending scientific conferences.
