David Sinclair, who was born in Sydney, Australia on June 26th, 1969, is 53 years old as of the current time. However, he considers himself to have a biological age in his mid-30s due to his cellular health. Sinclair's father András is the son of Hungarian refugees, and the family's surname was Anglicized to Sinclair from Szigeti. Sinclair's interest in the longevity field was sparked in 1993 after attending a lecture on gene regulation and ageing by Leonard Guarente, a professor at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. He made a groundbreaking discovery in 1996, which propelled his career, that yeast ageing could be explained. Sinclair is known for his research on resveratrol, a compound found in red wine, that can extend the lifespan of yeast and mice. He is also known for his research on NMN, or Nicotinamide Mononucleotide, a compound that has shown promising results in mouse trials. Sinclair's fame rose due to his discoveries around resveratrol and his excellent communication skills. Sinclair follows intermittent fasting diets, exercises regularly, and takes supplements such as NMN and resveratrol, among others, to combat ageing.
