"If we can prepare for it socially, politically and institutionally, and if we keep birth rates low..."
Your quote above is unlikely to happen for at least another century. Your scientific aspiration is noble and at the same time naive. What would happen is that a rich minority would live longer while the majority of humans would linger with ailments. My advice to you would be not to pursue this because it would fall in the wrong hands, like many other scientific discoveries have done so. All the best.
