Aubrey de Grey to leave SENS by 2022


From Statnews,

Aubrey de Grey, the jet-setting gerontologist who co-founded the SENS Research Foundation to discover ways to reverse the ravages of aging, has been placed on leave by the foundation after being accused of sexual harassment by two prominent entrepreneurs in the field of healthy life span extension.

On Tuesday night, Laura Deming, the 27-year-old founder of the Longevity Fund, and Celine Halioua, the 26-year-old founder and CEO of Loyal, a biotech startup developing drugs to help dogs live longer, posted accounts on their blogs and to Twitter of experiences they had with de Grey as young scientists trying to gain a foothold in the field.

De Grey denied the allegations in a post on Facebook, and SENS issued a statement saying he had been placed on leave pending the outcome of an investigation.

Will Aubrey de Grey be terminated or resign from the SENS Research Foundation by 2022?

This question resolves positively if some official statement is made by the SENS Research Foundation indicating that Aubrey de Grey is terminated, or if Aubrey de Grey voluntarily resigns from the SENS Research Foundation. If neither happen by January 1st 2022, then this question resolves negatively.

For the purpose of this question, Aubrey de Grey is said to be "terminated" if the staff of SENS indicate that they are separating indefinitely from him. If he merely leaves for a short period of time, with the intention to return, this question should not resolve positively.
