About SENS Research Foundation
At SENS Research Foundation, we believe that a world free of age-related disease is possible. That's why we're funding work at universities across the world and at our own Research Center in Mountain View, CA.
Our research emphasizes the application of regenerative medicine to age-related disease, with the intent of repairing underlying damage to the body's tissues, cells, and molecules. Our goal is to help build the industry that will cure the diseases of aging.
Much of the research we fund is proof-of-concept. It is governed by a strategic agenda to demonstrate the feasibility of rejuvenation biotechnologies, as a natural extension of regenerative medicine as applied to aging, and therefore drive broader involvement.
We have assembled a world class team of advisors; we continue to build on the successful Aging (US) and biennial SENS (UK) Conferences; our expanding affiliations include non-profits with complementary missions, research organizations, government support, and technology transfer with mainstream biotechnology companies; our outreach and education activities raise awareness and interest in both the scientific and general communities. SRF leads the way in developing, promoting, and ensuring widespread access to treatments that repair the damage underlying the diseases of aging. SRF funds and performs research internally at our Foundation headquarters in Mountain View, California. We fund external research, students, post-docs, and interns at around over a dozen different universities and centers of excellence around the world. We educate scientific researchers: graduate students, post-docs, and faculty about aging research, and we conduct advocacy campaigns to educate the public about issues of aging and aging research and the damage caused during the aging process. We aim to completely redefine the way the world researches and treats aging and age-related diseases.
The challenge is not small. We are proposing nothing less than a transformation of medicine; away from the increasingly burdensome and unprofitable chase to treat pathologies, and towards a functional and, for society as a whole, more cost-effective approach to maintaining and extending individual health.
