A supercentenarian is anyone with the chronological age of 110 years or older. Stephen Coles, M.D., Ph.D., co-founder of the Los Angeles Gerontology Research Group kindly sent me his slides of the presentation he held last week on SENS3 entitled the Secrets of the oldest old and he gave a permission to publish these slides here in the form of a slideshow. The readers can now gain now some scholarly insights on what it is to be a supercentenarian. I cut out the autopsy slides (1 week after death) showing the pretty healthy organs (brain, liver, spinal cord, heart…) of the recently died 106 yo centenarian but all slides can be viewed at the GRG homepage (click Resources). Long live the 75 validated supercentenarians and all the unvalidated ones!
