Following our successful fundraise of $4.1 million (check out the Forbes article), a new wave of projects are in the pipeline to be funded. First up in 2023 is Brain Tissue Replacement Therapy with Jean Hebert
The Longevity field is starting the year strongly with new updated Hallmarks of aging, exactly 10 years after the original paper was published. So time to update your introduction slides with the figure we will see in every presentation for the next
As the end of the year is fast approaching we wanted to look back and appreciate all the effort and hard work of the researchers in the VitaDAO community - from students, postdocs and fellows to principal investigators
A multitude of discoveries and inventions throughout history have been made by people who were initially trained in one domain, but were able to make a significant contribution to a different field due to their ability to look at a problem with a uni

Rapamycin is the most promising aging intervention we currently have
It was in 1975 when scientists from Ayerst (now Pfizer) discovered a novel compound called rapamycin (also known as Sirolimus) in bacteria on Rapa Nui(Easter Island) in Chile. In 1999 rapamycin obtained FDA approval for the prevention of acute reject
Some species in the animal kingdom live extraordinarily long lives. They seem to be somehow protected from all the damage that we would expect to accumulate in aged tissues. Many are very large, like bowhead whales, and there is an established correl
Welcome back to our monthly newsletter! This month we are excited to bring you an interview with Dr. Marco Demaria who has made some significant contributions to our understanding of cellular senescence.
We are announcing The Longevity Prize in collaboration with Foresight. A series of prizes to honor and accelerate progress in longevity and rejuvenation. The longevity prize encourages novel approaches for turning back our aging clocks.
Epigenetic Clocks: A Simple Lab Test Measuring Biological Age
Humans can instinctively recognize if someone appears older or younger than their age; so then, it should be apparent that many species, including humans, develop age-related changes at different rates.
