Telomeres are very special caps at the ends of each chromosome that protect against deterioration. A beautiful study came out recently showing that if your genes urge your telomeres to be better maintained, your chances of getting Alzheimer's disease will be somewhat low. We've studied moms of children who were chronically ill and postmenopausal women who were taking care of a family member. How has your work changed your thinking about aging? I used to think that aging was an inevitable march toward getting these debilitating diseases, but it doesn't have to happen.
It's not 100 percent protection, but it's an underlying factor. Exercise, do really interesting activities, don't have long-term chronic stress. In both groups, the worse the stress was — and the longer they felt it — the more their telomeres wore down. A big study categorized people: Do you do vigorous exercise? One idea of aging was that you might like to take it easier and easier, but what I've found personally is that what I really needed was purpose, which is actually why I took this job at the Salk Institute.
What's the big unanswered question that's driving you now?
