Biography

David A. Sinclair, A.O., Ph.D. is regarded as the world foremost expert on human longevity. As a Professor in the Genetics Department at Harvard Medical School, Boston, he heads a leading research lab that has discovered why we age and how to control it. In 2020, his lab was the first to show that aging can be safely reversed in an animal to cure blindness, a discovery that has led to a multi-billion-dollar industry aiming to treat human diseases and extend lifespan by controlling the aging process. Dr. Sinclair holds board seats on for-profit and non-profit organizations, and is co-Director of the Paul F. Glenn Center at Harvard Medical School. He is also an honorary Professor at the University of Sydney and co-founder of the scientific journal Aging.

He obtained a BS and a Ph.D. in Sydney Australia, then moved to M.I.T. where he discovered why yeast cells age, the first proven cause of aging for any organism. In 1999, he was hired at Harvard Medical School at the age of 29 and promoted to tenured full Professor in 2008. The yeast discovery led him to propose the “Information Theory of Aging,” which has become widely accepted as an explanation for why we grow old and why it is possible to reverse the process. In 2020, his lab was the first to show that aging can be safely reversed in mouse and human tissues, a discovery that has fueled a multi-billion-dollar industry to treat diseases and extend human lifespan by controlling the aging process.
