Progeria narrowly refers to Hutchinson-Gilford Progeria syndrome, but the term is also used more generally to describe any of the so-called "accelerated aging" diseases. The word progeria is derived from the Greek for "prematurely old".

Dr Joe Ridley was a geneticist researching the causes and possible cures for Progeria and the aging process in general (TXF: "Young at Heart").
