About the Author

Now in his 80s, Dr. Ruey J. Yu continues to work in the lab every day, hunting for biomarkers that could be used for early diagnosis of Alzheimer's and other diseases. In 2016, Dr. Yu and Dr. Van Scott sold NeoStrata to Johnson & Johnson, which is expanding the company's research labs into a centre of excellence for dermatological research. Freelance journalist and former news reporter for The Ottawa Citizen.


Every tube of skin cream with AHA, the wildly popular anti-wrinkle ingredient, exists because of a half-starved boy in wartime Taiwan who travelled to university in Ottawa and went on to fortune. [...] Yu's life "is the classic story of constant optimism, moving forward in the face of adversity, overcoming all odds."
-- Tom Spears * Ottawa Citizen *
