SENS Research Foundation works to develop, promote, and ensure widespread access to therapies that cure and prevent the diseases and disabilities of aging by comprehensively repairing the damage that builds up in our bodies over time. We are redefining the way the world researches and treats age-related ill health, while inspiring the next generation of biomedical scientists.

Discover the science behind our strategies to extend a healthy lifespan.

Training a new generation of scientists to tackle the roots of age-related disease.

Keep up to date on SRF’s latest news and activities.

As reported by the Daily Express at

HEX cryptocurrency founder Richard Heart has created an initiative through the The PulseChain Airdrop that “…involves a revolutionary intersection between the worlds of cryptocurrency and science where donators to the SENS Foundation via pulsechain receive an amount of a new cryptocurrency in return.”

The initiative has “…raised a staggering $25million in just four days for the anti-ageing charity, a benchmark that Doctor de Grey has described as “mind-blowing”.

Aubrey further declared:  “This is something that is completely transformative. It is going to allow us to move considerably faster to getting towards a post-ageing world, it is just amazing!”

We are pleased to announce that the ApoptoSENS team led by Dr. Amit Sharma at the SRF Research Center has recently been granted a Catalyst award, courtesy of the Healthy Longevity Global Competition, to continue and expand their critical work on the interactions between senescent cells and natural killer (NK) cells.

Supported by the award, the ApoptoSENS team will now investigate whether the age-related loss of NK cell effectiveness in clearing senescent cells is reversible, and whether this may provide routes for therapeutic intervention. If successful, this work will clear a major hurdle to realizing NK cell-based treatments for senescent cell elimination.

The Research-Integrated Science Education (RISE) Program has launched a new cellular senescence-themed learning module. Explore videos detailing laboratory techniques and biological concepts underpinning cell senescence research to better understand SRF’s current project led by Dr. Amit Sharma.

Teachers will also be able to utilize additional resources, such as presentations outlining primary literature and interactive data analysis activities, to explore how senescence affects lifespan, cancer, and Alzheimer’s Disease.

Senotherapeutics Report

With sponsorship from SRF, Longevity.Technology’s Market Intelligence Unit has published a report examining the potential of targeting cell senescence to treat many major diseases – particularly including current and upcoming investment opportunities – accompanied by a foreword written by SRF Chief Science Officer, Dr. Aubrey de Grey.

Michael Greve Doubles Down

Michael Greve, founder of the Forever Healthy Foundation and owner of Kizoo Technology Ventures, announced today that he will make an additional €300 million ($361m USD) available to launch new rejuvenation biotechnology startups and support the clinical translation of therapies designed by Kizoo’s existing portfolio of companies.

Defeating Aging by 2036

SRF’s Chief Science Officer, Dr. Aubrey de Grey, recently estimated a 50% chance that aging could be brought under medical control in as little as 15 years’ time. In a new interview with NextBigFuture, Dr. de Grey explains how recent developments – including the global response to the COVID-19 pandemic – contributed to that prediction.
