The trajectory of my career has been an incessant zig-zag. I can't help from making synapse connections between concepts and fields many people find unrelated. And I needed this big-picture view to work on my favorite project by far - 'The aging gap between species' book, a journey of comparative gerontology from the simplest to the most complex organisms known and what makes them age so differently. There is a plethora of species displaying negligible senescence, but the research done on them is scattered around in obscure journals and the common mouse is still the de facto animal model when studying aging.

Aging is a puzzle to solve. Lifespan differences among species are magnitudes of order larger than any lifespan variation achieved in the lab. This is the reason for which I studied countless information resources in an attempt to gather highly specialized research into one easy-to-follow book. Only you can decide if I achieved this.
