About the Gerontology Research Group (GRG)

The Gerontology Research Group (GRG) was founded in 1990 by L. Stephen Coles, MD PhD, and Steven Kaye MD.  Early members include Steven Harris, MD, Joe Schulman, PhD, Greg Fahy, PhD, Robert Nathan PhD and Michael Rose, PhD.

Our mission is to slow and ultimately reverse age related decline for more healthy years of life.

GRG is the foremost authority on the world's oldest humans -- specifically supercentenarian research, authentication and database.  This division is managed by Robert Young who leads a group of international researchers.  GRG is cited by the Guinness Book of World Records and often quoted in newspapers.

A major asset and central communication hub is the email discussion forum (list service).    As of June 2018 there are about 498 members.  A member sends an email to one email address that is forwarded to all members, and replies are in turn sent to all members.
