Crowdfunding the Cure
Conquering the negative effects of aging is one of the oldest dreams of humanity, and now, through the steady progress of science, we are poised to fulfill that dream.
Whether this occurs in 20 years or 200 is largely a question of funding. The best way to accelerate this process is by mobilizing people who desire longer and healthier lives into a cohesive social force – crowdfunding relevant research and advocating for its benefits to society.
WHAT IS LIFESPAN.IO?
Lifespan.io is a unique crowdfunding platform dedicated solely to longevity research projects. By crowdfunding early-stage studies on aging, we are accelerating the accumulation of knowledge on how to prevent and eventually reverse age-related ill health and helping new therapies reach clinical trials more rapidly.
Researchers can launch breakthrough projects that might be overlooked by the government grant system due to their novel nature, receiving funds from contributors to fulfill their goals.
Contributors, in turn, can influence the direction and pace of the scientific research that is important to them personally while receiving useful rewards and learning more about the exciting field of rejuvenation biotechnology.
Since we launched our research fundraising project Lifespan.io in 2015, we have raised over $310,000 for breakthrough research and hosted the following successful crowdfunding campaigns:
