Aubrey de Grey was born in London in 1963. He graduated with a BA in computer science and was awarded a PhD in Biology by the University of Cambridge. Currently, he leads the SENS Research Foundation (Strategies for Engineered Negligible Senescence Research Foundation) in the United States. De Grey is widely known for his work as a biomedical gerontologist, in which he focuses on regenerative medicine and, more specifically, on tissue regeneration. He has developed seven therapies for seven different forms of cell damage, which aim at slowing the ageing process and even achieving an indefinite life expectancy. With his robust opinion on the fact that science will beat death, he has become one of the most controversial scientists in his field.
