- Human Longevity, Inc.
Human Longevity works on genomics and stem cells, in an attempt to extend human health (and thus, life.)
- Jason Hope
Jason Hope is an entrepreneur, futurist, philanthropist, and investor based in Scottsdale, Arizona. He has a passion for technology and giving back to his community. He regularly supports SENS both through advocacy and generous donations.
- Life Extension Advocacy Foundation
LEAF is the engine room of rejuvenation advocacy all over the world. A non-profit working to educate the public on the science, ethics, and social implications of rejuvenation, LEAF also organises crowdfunding campaigns to finance research against ageing. Since 2016, I have the privilege to help them in their mission.
- Lifespan.io is LEAF’s crowdfunding platform to fund research against ageing.
- International Longevity Alliance
The International Longevity Alliance works to promote research against the ageing process and spread awareness on the rejuvenation cause.
- Longevity for All
Longevity for All is a website run by dr. Ilia Stambler, discussing the ethical reasons for life extensionism, rejuvenation science, and advocacy.
- Major Mouse Testing Program
MMTP is a research project to test senolytic drugs on mice. MMTP was Lifespan.io’s first crowdfunding project.
- Methuselah Foundation
Methuselah Foundation was the original organisation which SENS spun off of. Its goal is to finance research and advocacy projects to ‘create a world where 90-year-olds can be as healthy as 50-year-olds—by 2030’
- National Institute on Aging
NIA finances the vast majority of ageing research in the world, and carries out research of its own on the nature of ageing, aiming to extend people’s healthspan and well-being.
- New Organ
New Organ is a company born thanks to the efforts of Methuselah Foundation (see above). It focuses on regenerative medicine to create organs on demand, using the patients’ own cells. This kind of technology could make organ donations and waiting lists a thing of the past.
- Oisin Biotechnologies
Oisin iss one of the many companies working on senescent cell clearance.
Organovo is a bioprinting company, i.e. they work on technologies to ‘print’ fully functional human tissue.
Project|21 is a SENS initiative to collect the necessary funding to launch the first rejuvenation biotechnology human trials by 2021.
Senescence.info is dr. João Pedro de Magalhães’ excellent website discussing the details of the biology of ageing. It also talks about advocacy and other aspects of the matter.
- SENS Research Foundation
SENS is the engine room of the nascent rejuvenation biotechnology industry, furthering research both through their own intramural projects and financing extramural research in univeristies and labs all over the world.
- Solving Organ Shortage
SOS works on organ regeneration and lab-grown organs for transplants.
If you’re a user on Reddit, this is a subreddit dedicated to longevity.
