We have done a lot of things in the last few years since we first created our non-profit organization, and we would like to share some of those achievements with you here. When we first began our work, we wanted to make a real impact and get involved in ushering in a new age of medical technology and progress. To that end, we have continued to grow as an organization every year, with the range of activities we do increasing along with our reach and influence. We are working on the front lines of research advocacy, and here is just a small sample of what we are doing.

FUNDING RESEARCH

Since we launched our research fundraising project Lifespan.io in 2015, we have raised over $200,000 for breakthrough research and hosted the following successful crowdfunding campaigns:

 

MouseAge – Aging Biomarkers

 

AgeMeter – Aging Biomarkers

 

CellAge – Synthetic Biology and Biomarkers

OncoSENS – Therapy for ALT Cancer

MMTP: Phase 1 - Senolytics

MMTP – Combination Senolytic Therapies

MitoSENS - Mitochondrial repair

MitoSENS – Mitochondrial Repair

REPORTING THE LATEST NEWS

Since January 2017, we have been reporting on the latest news and happenings in the aging research field. We interview the leading figures in rejuvenation biotech and aging research, report on the latest developments in the industry, create advocacy articles exploring the ethics and social issues of longer lives, and produce educational articles about the biology of aging.

REJUVENATION ROUNDUP

Brought to you by Nicola Bagalà, the Rejuvenation Roundup is our monthly digest, which takes a look at the big news stories involving the industry and helps keep you informed of current developments in the aging research field. To accompany the monthly Rejuvenation Roundup, as of July, we also began to include a podcast version that takes a deeper look at some of the key stories from that particular month and is hosted by Ryan O’Shea of the Future Grind podcast. You can listen to the first episode below; for more, check out our Rejuvenation Roundup page.

Ryan covers a variety of topics from a busy July in the rejuvenation biotechnology field, including the placement of “ageing-related” into the 11th revision of WHO’s International Classification of Diseases (ICD-11) along with insights from industry leaders about developing news in the field.

SPREADING THE WORD

We work to make high-impact collaborations with large-scale content creators on platforms like YouTube in order to inform and engage an ever-widening segment of the population on the topic of longevity research. We welcome the opportunity to work on more such initiatives; feel free to contact us if you are a content creator looking to produce well-informed videos on the subject of aging and life extension.

HOSTING QUALITY CONFERENCES

2018 saw the launch of our annual conference in the heart of New York City, Ending Age-Related Diseases: Investment Prospects & Advances in Research. The packed event took place at the Frederick P. Rose Auditorium, which is part of the Cooper Union campus. The goal of this conference was to promote multidisciplinary collaboration in order to foster the development of next-generation drugs and therapies that directly target the processes of aging and thus have the potential to prevent and cure age-related diseases.
