Ending Age-Related Diseases: 2020


We are happy to announce our third Ending Age-Related Diseases: Investment Prospects & Advances in Research conference! This time, we will be meeting on August 20-21 at the Stern Auditorium of the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai.

With numerous interventions against aging already in human clinical trials, the rejuvenation industry seems to be reaching the stage of bearing fruit. However, much has yet to be done before our society can benefit from scientific progress in this field.

We are bringing together thought leaders in the rejuvenation industry to foster scientific and business collaborations in order to accelerate the development of therapies that target the root causes of aging. Join us for two days packed with insightful talks about how we can end age-related diseases more quickly! Registration is now open, and you are welcome to take advantage of the Early Bird ticket price.

After multiple requests last year, we are organizing a poster session so that young scientists who won’t be participating as speakers can present their work to the audience. Twenty poster slots are available.

To submit your poster for consideration, please send it to Elena (PPT or PDF for A0 vertical) together with this information:

  • Title of your poster
  • Name of the presenting author
  • Institution of the presenting author
  • Short text explaining how your study is advancing rejuvenation research

If your poster is chosen for poster the session, Elena will send you a special code to register with a special discounted fee for poster presenters ($400).

This year, the four main topics will be:

  • Biomarkers of aging
  • New findings in fundamental studies of aging
  • Development of therapies that target the root mechanisms of aging
  • Longevity investment strategies and the regulatory landscape

A draft conference program will be published soon.


If you are a researcher: EARD2020 offers you the opportunity to get an overview of what is going on in various areas of aging research and discuss promising directions and potential blind spots with your peers. Our common goal is to ensure that all bases are covered and we are getting closer to the possibility of bringing all age-related diseases under medical control. You can also benefit from our extensive media support of the event, which is aimed at making your research more visible to the public. If you are not part of the main program, consider participating in the poster session to present your studies to the audience.

If you are a longevity supporter: We feature the most up-to-date studies on aging and rejuvenation, and we are creating a considerable amount of educational content to help you keep track of new developments, understand the science behind various interventions against age-related diseases, and build your own reliable longevity strategy. On top of that, being among like-minded people and exchanging insights is refreshing! 

If you are an investor: EARD2020 will feature leading researchers and biotech companies, so you will be able to scout for currently promising opportunities for investment. Detailed presentations will also improve your understanding of longevity science, to help you navigate the field more easily in the future. There will be talk and a panel discussion including investors who will share their experiences of working in this nascent industry.

If you are leading a biotech company: You are welcome to apply for speaking at the conference or to support it as a sponsor. In both cases, we will do our best to make your company more visible to the longevity community during and after the event. A conference is an ideal place where you can find more business partners and investors to support your work.
