Dr. Anca Ioviță

Anca Ioviță, M.D., M.Eng. is a geriatrics physician and medical writer whose early fascination with life extension prompted her to study both engineering and medicine.
 
Anca is author of the Longevity Letter blog and her books include Eat Less, Live Longer: Your Practical Guide to Calorie Restriction with Optimal Nutrition, The Aging Gap Between Species, and What Is Your Legacy?: 101 Ideas On Getting Started to Create and Build One. Read the full list of her books!
 
Her favorite project has been writing The Aging Gap Between Species which is a journey of comparative gerontology from the simplest to the most complex organisms known and what makes them age so differently. There is a plethora of species displaying negligible senescence, but the research done on them is scattered around in obscure journals and the common mouse is still the de facto animal model when studying aging.
 
Anca earned her Bachelor’s degree in Aerospace Engineering at the University Politehnica of Bucharest in 2009. She earned her Master’s degree in Aerospace Engineering at the University Politehnica of Bucharest in 2011. She earned her M.D. in General Medicine at the Carol Davila University of Medicine and Pharmacy in 2011. She completed her medical residency in geriatrics and gerontology at the National Institute of Gerontology and Geriatrics “Ana Aslan” in 2016.
