An org focused on citizen science and biohacking. LongeCity (also known as the Immortality Institute) is an international, not-for-profit, membership-based organization, who support the development of life extension technologies and ecourage citizen science and discussion.
Since January 2011, the Immortality Institute formally adopted ‘LongeCity’ as a second ‘trading’ name. Today, the organisation uses both names, but prefers to use “LongeCity” for its public-facing activities and “Immortality Institute” when referring to the circle of its voting members. The reason for adopting this second name was to overcome credibility issues as the word “immortality” often triggers negative reactions among both the public and academia.
