The Achievements of Our Organization
In the few years since our org was launched we have been successful in a number of key areas and have reached a number of important milestones.
The Longevity Prize
In 2022 we were proud to be a part of the Longevity Prize. A series of prizes to honor and accelerate progress in longevity and rejuvenation brought to you thanks to VitaDAO, Foresight Institute, Methuselah Foundation and Lifespan.io.
Since we launched our research fundraising platform Lifespan.io in 2015, we have raised over $750,000 for important aging research and worked with institutions including Harvard Medical School and SENS Research Foundation. Thanks to the generosity of the community,the funds raised have supported nine studies, including topics such as mitochondrial repair, DNA damage, visual biomarkers of aging, and senescent cell clearance.
|$750,000+ collected||9 Projects supported||1 Publication resulting||3500+Backers worldwide|
Popularizing aging research and longevity
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 aging research and healthy longevity. 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.

Some more of our achievements
As an non-profit org,we are involved in many activities in support of the development of therapies focused on the root causes of aging, here are just some of the amazing things we have been doing.
The rejuvenation roadmap
In 2018, we launched the Rejuvenation Roadmap, a curated database tracking the various therapies targeting the aging processes in order to delay, prevent, or even reverse age-related diseases. The roadmap breaks down aging into nine categories of damage, known as the hallmarks, and shows which projects are targeting which hallmarks as well as how far along the clinical trial process they are. This is your one-stop shop to see how things are progressing and how far we might be from these technologies being available which may bring us increased healthy longevity.
In July 2018, we hosted the Ending Age-Related Diseases 2018 conference at the Cooper Union in the heart of New York City. The conference saw various industry experts and thought leaders come together for an action-packed day of research and biotech business talks and panels. Since then, we have hosted a conference focused on the technology to increase healthy longevity every year. Building on this success, we have hosted a conference every year since.
In early 2018, we created the Longevity Investor Network (LIN), a project designed to create a network of investors interested in aging research as well as identifying promising startups working in the rejuvenation biotechnology and longevity tech space. The LIN meets every month, and new companies working on therapies targeting the aging processes get to pitch to the network of investors; this brings researchers and investors together to help drive progress and funding.
