Autumn is upon those of us in the Northern Hemisphere. A lot has happened, and as usual, we have been busy supporting human longevity research to end age-related diseases.

The first talks from EARD2023 are available

The Ending Age-Related Diseases 2023 (EARD2023) conference is over, and it was a huge success. This year’s event focused on the union of aging and rejuvenation research and decentralized science (DeSci).

DeSci aims to increase funding for scientific research, free knowledge from silos, and cut out profit-motivated intermediaries, such as publishers. It allows diverse sources, such as DAOs and blockchain-based initiatives, to crowdfund research free from the limitations of traditional funding models.

We believe that DeSci projects are a way to speed up progress in aging research. This is why our conference this year included longevity, rejuvenation, and Desci in its talks, workshops, and panels.

As part of our commitment to open science and education, we have started to publish videos from the conference. So far, we have published three of the conference talks, and there are many more to come!

You can find the videos from the event on the Lifespan.io Youtube EARD2023 playlist soon. More videos will be made available in the following months. We will have some initial details about EARD2024 towards the end of the year; we hope you can join us there!

Lifespan.io in the media

We wanted to highlight some of the news stories that came from the conference.

Cointelegraph

According to Cointelegraph, Blockchain takes the stage at Longevity+DeSci summit in New York. The popular finance-focused website was enthusiastic about the fusion of rejuvenation research and decentralized science. If you are interested in how the future of research funding could pan out in the near future, check it out!

Microdose, a site focused on psychedelics for medical use, said that Lifespan.io was β€œAdvancing the Frontiers of Longevity Science”. They spoke highly about the rejuvenation research that was showcased at our conference. They also talked about the wider implications of using DeSci as an alternative funding source for research.

The Global Affair at EARD2023

Nicole Gibson from the Global Affair podcast was at the conference and interviewed some of the guest speakers. She had this to say about the event:

My experience in New York echoed a sci-fi novel. Yet, this was no fiction. It was in the studio of The Global Affair Luminaries painted a breathtaking picture of the future. If you’ve ever dreamt of a world where science is democratized, where aging is a historical belief, and where the vast cosmos is our next home, brace yourself.

Decentralised Science (DeSci) is breaking down walls of institutions. DeSci is unlocking the true potential of collaborative, global research. No boundaries, no limits, just pure, unadulterated scientific pursuit. Systems that will perpetuate freedom and sovereignty (what’s truly organic) are coming together to form alliances like never before.

The Global Affair has made four episodes from the conference covering various aspects of longevity and DeSci:

Thank you to Nicole for taking the time to attend and make these thought-provoking podcasts.
