Aubrey de Grey
Aubrey de Grey is working to expedite the development of a 'cure' for human aging, a medical goal he refers to as engineered negligible senescence (senescence means the biological decline of aging). To this end, he has identified what he concludes are the seven areas of the aging process that need to be addressed medically before this can be done. In 1985 he received a B.A. in Computer Science. In recognition of his book on mitochondria and other publications, in 2000 Cambridge granted de Grey a Ph.D. in biology. He believes we will soon extend lifespans to 1,000.
