Wind at His Back

Grad student Trey Powers has hunted with hawks and raced yachts. Now he's navigating his way toward an understanding of how yeast cells age

Abstract: The question of why and how organisms age has preoccupied Trey Powers since he was 14. By the time he was a high school senior, he had conducted his first experiments in a gerontology research group at the Jackson Laboratory in Maine. Today Powers is a third-year grad student at the University of Washington, Seattle. When he isn't probing the mechanisms of aging in baker's yeast, he races in sailing competitions on the Puget Sound.
