Announcing Ending Age-Related Diseases 2019 – a 2-day conference in New York City

The Life Extension Advocacy Foundation is announcing Ending Age-Related Diseases 2019 – a 2-day conference in New York City to foster the development of rejuvenation biotechnology

NEW YORK, January. 10, 2018 — After the incredible success of the conference Ending Age-Related Diseases 2018, the Life Extension Advocacy Foundation is happy to announce its second annual conference, Ending Age-Related Diseases 2019, which is to be held at Cooper Union in New York City on July 11-12th, 2019.

The conference is aimed at focusing the NYC business community’s attention on the current state of aging and rejuvenation research that has the potential to prevent and cure age-related diseases. With multiple research projects targeting the underlying processes of aging in order to develop preventive medicines, promoting collaboration between academia, the rejuvenation industry, and investors becomes an increasingly important task.

The list of confirmed speakers already includes renowned researchers and visionaries, such as Dr. Aubrey de Grey (SENS Research Foundation), Michael Greve (KIZOO Technology Ventures, Forever Healthy Foundation), Dr. Vadim Gladyshev (Harvard Medical School), Dr. Vera Gorbunova (University of Rochester), Dr. Alex Zhavoronkov (Insilico Medicine), and Reason and Bill Cherman (Repair Biotechnologies), with more speakers from rejuvenation biotechnology companies and the investment sector to be confirmed soon.

Keith Comito, president of the Life Extension Advocacy Foundation, describes the conference as follows:



This year’s conference will focus on two main topics. The first topic will be progress in aging research, from fundamental studies to the interventions that are being tested in human clinical trials and the development of reliable biomarkers of aging. The second topic will be devoted to the hurdles of implementing these emerging rejuvenation biotechnologies into clinical practice, with a special focus on investment, the regulatory landscape, and the preparedness of the medical community. This way, we hope not only to attract the attention of investors to these very promising medical innovations but also to promote public dialogue on how to ensure their availability and accessibility to our aging society.

Ending Age-Related Diseases 2019 is not only open to the scientific community but welcomes everyone who is interested in aging and rejuvenation research.

About the author

Elena Milova

Elena has been a longevity activist and advocate since 2013, when she first started to organize educational events to make new evidence-based methods of healthy life extension more popular. The last few years have seen Elena leading some successful projects in Russia, aimed at spreading the idea of healthy longevity among decision makers as well as the general public. Several years of lobbying resulted in the inclusion of her propositions in the strategic program documents of the Russian Federation related to the problems of the elderly. She is a co-author of the book “Aging Prevention for All” (in Russian, 2015), where, among other topics, she is sharing how to facilitate the adoption of the healthy lifestyle to promote the period of good health. In 2015, Elena helped to shape and coordinate the successful crowdfunding campaign of the Major Mouse Testing Program – a study of Senolytic drug combinations on mouse lifespan. In 2017 at LEAF, Elena led a successful advocacy project to include the problems of the elderly into the WHO’s 13th Programme of Work . Previously Elena has worked as a project manager in the pharmaceutical and advertisement industries, helping to promote new drugs and therapies. This experience helped her to realize that the existing therapies were not 100% effective and could not completely stop age-related diseases – which has ignited an interest for the development of innovative therapies. Elena graduated with a bachelor’s in both psychology and foreign languages and is now working to earn her MBA at the oldest Russian business school MIRBIS.
