Co-founder and chief science officer of the SENS (Strategies for Engineered Negligible Senescence) Research Foundation, said that it could be possible to rejuvenate the ovary by stimulating or replenishing stem cells and they could create a whole new ovary through tissue engineering like an artificial heart.

However, Dr de Grey's optimism was not shared by some of his fellow scientists.
