Topics from "How we can avoid aging" to "Will a robot care for my mom?" vary in message and approach with a futuristic twist. - New Aging Dr. Aubrey de Grey is an author and theoretician in the field of gerontology, and the Chief Science Officer of the SENS Foundation. He is editor-in-chief of the academic journal Rejuvenation Research, author of The Mitochondrial Free Radical Theory of Aging (1999) and co-author of Ending Aging (2007).
