Committed to finding treatments that demonstrably extend human lifespan by 2030

About the Longevity
Research Institute

We’re a research nonprofit dedicated to accelerating translational science in the biology of aging.

What We Do

We fund and coordinate research that tests drugs to see which ones extend life and health in animals, with the goal of finding good candidate anti-aging therapies for testing in humans.  We’re accelerating aging science by giving exceptional researchers the resources they need to expand their work.

The Problem

Age-related diseases are mostly incurable -- but they might be preventable.

Step 1

Replicate the biggest anti-aging effects in mice.

Step 2

Test thousands of new drugs in invertebrates using machine learning.

Step 3

Test combinations of the best drugs in mice.
