He was a professor at Harvard Medical School. In 2004 Sinclair met with the philanthropist Paul F. Glenn who donated $5 million to Harvard to establish the Paul F. Glenn Laboratories for the Biological Mechanisms of Aging at Harvard. He founded Sirtris company focused on developing Sinclair's research into activators of sirtuins, work that began in the collaboration with Guarente. The company was specifically focused on resveratrol formulations and derivatives as activators of the SIRT1 enzyme; Sinclair became known for making statements about resveratrol. In the future, people will maybe be taking these molecules on a daily basis to prevent heart disease, stroke, and cancer Sinclair was also a co-founder of CohBar, along with Nir Barzilai and other colleagues.

Reversing Aging is Easier Than Reversing Baldness


“NAD+ is the closest we’ve gotten to a fountain of youth,” says David Sinclair, co-director of the Paul F. Glenn Center for the Biology of Aging at Harvard Medical School. “It’s one of the most important molecules for life to exist, and without it, you’re dead in 30 seconds.” The goal of his laboratory is to establish new biological approaches that can be translated into radically different medicines to promote longer, more productive lives.
