I'm now 79 years old (plus) and have been interested in prolongation of life since age four (when I was diagnosed as having TB) - In my estimation,there is ONE and only one requirement to being a good scientist (in ANY field) aand that is to have unlimited curiosity. I still work in my labotatory seven days a week, usually 12 to 14 hours a day. If I were motivated by money or prestigue or interst in some one specialty, I would have retired 25 years ago.
