The Ending Age-Related Diseases 2023 conference has ended, and it was a big success. Today, we are delighted to announce that the first of our conference videos is available: the opening talk from the event given by our President, Keith Comito.

But before we get into that, we would like to thank those of you who attended for being a part of this amazing event!

Meetings like this are invaluable for networking, generating relationships and energy, updating our knowledge with the latest research, and pushing the field forward. Your support makes this possible and helps to accelerate the entire longevity space, so from the entire team at Lifespan.io, thank you!

Lifespan.io Executive Director, Stephanie Dainow, had this to say about the event:

The event was a huge success for the field. For attendees interested in learning the latest in research and development around longevity biotech and rejuvenation science, the speakers delivered. The event was also an opportunity in person and online for audiences in different industries to meet and identify synergies that would enhance progress. Decentralized science, and ensuring therapies are available to everyone, requires lots of dynamic discussion and strategic planning, which the conference facilitated in spades. One of the keys to short-term success is finding new alliances with adjacent industries, to get more skin in the game.

DeSci is another way to speed up progress in aging research

Decentralized science (DeSci) is a movement that aims to increase scientific funding, free knowledge from silos, and cut out profit-motivated intermediaries, such as publisher conglomerates that lock scientific data behind paywalls.


Eterna is a clothing company with a focus on longevity.

Keith’s opening talk focuses on the intersection of rejuvenation research and DeSci and the various possibilities that the union of these two offers us as a community. A way to fund ambitious research free from the risk aversion and constraints of traditional funding channels could be a real shot in the arm for the field.

Lifespan.io is interested in using the potential of the DeSci movement to accelerate progress in aging and rejuvenation research. Raising funds for research is a key focus of that strategy, and we will have more to announce on that front in the near future.
