SENS Research Foundation is delighted to conform that our year-end challenge grant has now been fully funded, raising $250,000 in aid of our work -- and smashing last year's record of $180,000.

SENS Research Foundation thanks everyone who donated toward this goal for their support for the Fight Aging! 2015 Challenge. The $125,000 challenge was the largest in the history of SENS Research Foundation. We received over 1000 individual donations from over 700 donors! We are enormously grateful to these donors and to the individuals and organizations who joined forces to put together the $125,000 matching fund:

Fight Aging!

Buck Institute Publishes in Cell Metabolism


Researchers at the Buck Institute for Research on Aging have published a new paper in Cell Metabolism. Entitled "Mitochondrial Dysfunction Induces Senescence with a Distinct Secretory Phenotype", this article describes a finding which "...provides alternative explanation for the free-radical theory of aging and suggests new role for mitochondria in affecting physiology". Performed in Dr. Judith Campisi's lab, this work received partial funding from SRF. Read the full press release on the Buck's website.
