Rookie Rising

Matt Kaeberlein fermented a breakthrough in the genetics of yeast aging. His next feat: starting a biotech firm

Ingfei Chen;2002/50/nf16

Abstract: Biologist Matt Kaeberlein has never quite managed to blend into the ranks. He was first to graduate in his class at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, completing his Ph.D. in a mere 4 years and 3 months. During that time, he helped pinpoint the central gene that controls aging in brewer's yeast. Now, at the age of 31, he is vice president, as well as a co-founder, of biotech start-up Longenity.
