According to de Grey, there are only seven types of damage that need to be addressed by regenerative medicine in order to solve the aging problem:
1. Cell loss / cell atrophy
2. Division-obsessed cells (cancer)
3. Death-resistant cells
4. Mitochondrial mutations
5. Intracellular junk
6. Extracellular junk
7. Extracellular cross-links
In the TED presentation, de Grey also outlines how each form of damage:
De Grey is also Editor-in-Chief of Rejuvenation Research, the world's highest-impact peer-reviewed journal focused on intervention in aging. His research targets the accumulating and eventually pathogenic molecular and cellular side-effects of metabolism that constitute mammalian aging and the design of interventions to repair or obviate them.
His comprehensive plan breaks aging down into seven major classes and identifies detailed approaches to addressing each one. Dr. de Grey is a Fellow of both the Gerontological Society of America and the American Aging Association, and sits on the editorial and scientific advisory boards of numerous journals and organisations.
