Summary:
Increasing lifespan - Sirtuins and genes
I read this book called Lifespan by a Harvard researcher called David Sinclair.
They have found that Sirtuin genes (SIRT1 to SIRT7) help in repairing epi-genetic damage and have been able to extend mice lifespans by 20%.
They are going to move to human trials within the next few years.

Is anyone following this research? Is there a forum where we could share/discuss this information?

Most of us could extend our expected lifespan 20% if we just followed our doctor's advice but we don't.
