Abstract

The years 2015-2016 mark a double anniversary – the 170th anniversary of birth and the 100th anniversary of death – of one of the greatest Russian scientists, a person that may  be considered a founding figure of modern immunology, aging and longevity science – Elie Metchnikoff (May 15, 1845 – July 15, 1916). At this time of the rapid aging of the world population and the rapid development of technologies that may ameliorate degenerative aging processes, Metchnikoff’s pioneering contribution to the search for anti-aging and healthspan-extending means needs to be recalled and honored.
