What we are doing for life extension and you
Hi there, I’m Keith Comito, President of Lifespan.io, and I would like to welcome you to our website!
Have you ever asked yourself any of these questions?
- I’m interested in life extension and aging research, but where do I begin?
- Can medical science help to increase healthy human longevity?
- How close are we to curing age-related diseases, such as Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, heart disease, and cancer?
- I am a busy researcher, so how can I find out what is happening in the wider field quickly?
If you have, you’ve come to the right place!
A little bit about us
We are a US-based 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization headquartered in New York City, and are an international team of journalists, scientists, content creators, and other industry experts. Our goal is to promote aging research and healthy human longevity through the development of medical technologies that target the aging processes directly.
To achieve this goal we publish daily news stories, educational articles, and we host conferences and events to bring researchers and the public together each year. We also launch aging research crowdfunding campaigns as well as engaging with policymakers and the general public.
How we can help you
You might be wondering why we’ve gone through the effort of publishing hundreds of articles covering the latest life extension news, conducting dozens of interviews with top researchers in the field, producing monthly podcasts, giving talks at conferences and events, running our own annual conference, and creating a pop-sci news show that explains the world of aging research in plain and understandable language.
Our reason is simple: we want to provide you with the best tools to learn about this exciting medical field so that you have a solid foundation from which to make informed decisions regarding life extension, giving you more confidence about the direction that science is taking and how it can help you maintain your health and hopefully your longevity.
What makes us different?

But don’t just take our word for it
LEAF has become one of the world’s most important forces in spearheading the crusade to bring aging to an end. Their advocacy work continues to gain prominence, and with their series of New York conferences, they are now bringing the most cutting-edge scientific advances to a general audience. These fantastic events are an invaluable US counterpart to the ones that SENS Research Foundation runs in Berlin, and they are making a great contribution to the anti-aging crusade.
