Steve Hill

Lifespan.io / Lifespan Extension Advocacy Foundation - Editor-in-Chief

Hi there, I am Steve Hill, Editor-in-Chief of Lifespan.io News, which offers the latest information on rejuvenation biotechnology and life extension technologies. We are a passionate team of journalists and scientists who work hard to bring you aging research news from this fascinating field of science.

To help keep you informed, we have created three main channels where you can get your news. The daily news brings you the latest research, investment, and policy news, which is great if you like to keep up to date with everything happening in this rapidly changing field on a daily basis.

The Rejuvenation Roundup is a monthly breakdown of the key news and happenings in both written and podcast form and is ideal if you want a large information hit in one dose. Finally, Lifespan News is a weekly video recap of the most exciting life extension news presented by Brent Nally.
