Age Science in a nutshell

Dr. Aubrey de Grey, a biomedical gerontologist, is one of the leading figures in global aging research and a strong advocate in all aspects of the field, from research, investment, to supporting public policy regarding aging. His provocative view that medical technology will one day enable humans to control the aging process and live healthily into our hundreds or longer, is becoming less radical these days. Today, both the academic and private sectors are racing to tackle aging, helping the longevity sector to become one of the most attractive areas to invest in.

In this podcast Aubrey talks to IIOL about the following:

  • His own definition of aging?
  • The most disruptive innovations in the sector.
  • How will the healthcare industry change in the future?


  • I define aging as the lifelong accumulation of damage in the body.
  • I believe the healthcare industry in 2050 will be overwhelmingly focused on prevention.
