Impetus for Studying Aging?

26 September 2002

Joao Magalhaes


I work on aging for two reasons: (1) I love life; (2) I'm incredibly stubborn. So I refuse to accept that I will only enjoy life for an average of 75 years and a maximum of 122. I want more; I may be a dreamer but I believe in the beauty of my dreams. Ironically, I don't even like biology that much; I'm more of a mathematician or physicist. Yet I find gerontology fascinating and I think that the greatest breakthroughs are still to come.

All the best.
