The Gerontology Research Group

The Daily Bruin takes a look at the work of the Gerontology Research Group at UCLA. Quoting Dr. Karlis Ullis, "The longest living person is 122, and if we can get all people to live to 125 in a healthy way, that would be better than going to Mars. I would say I am part of that conceptual thinking – to live longer is better. That is what we are about." While the GRG focuses on gathering and verifying longevity information, most of the members are involved in aging research. For example, "studying similarities and differences between the lives of centenarians and supercentenarians, people who are 100 years or older."
