According to the Times, Aubrey de Grey has claimed rapid progress in stem cell and regenerative therapies might mean that the current limits on when women are able to conceive and give birth could disappear, the Independent reported.

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.
