'A few years ago, I was desperately trying to convince myself to quit smoking as I worked my way through a pack-a-day. During this phase I met a man named Aubrey de Grey. I had been attending some sort of ridiculous conference, hosted at a ridiculous hotel on Collins St in Melbourne. The well-known biologist was there to speak about his radical idea - that we could very soon delay, or even abolish, the process of getting older. De Grey envisions a world without old age as we know it. The Cambridge-educated de Grey is probably the most prominent - and notorious - figure in the field of gerontology, or the study of senescence.' (Publication abstract)
