SENS Research Foundation was founded in 2009 by a team of five individuals, invested in seeing the SENS approach to aging make an impact in healthcare. Since then, SRF has grown into a world leader in rejuvenation biotechnology with global health summits, academic conferences, internal and external research programs and over 1,000 annual donors. Our leadership team — comprised of our top executives, Board of Directors, and Research Advisory Board — continue to expand the foundation, bring in new and motivated talent, and drive how the world views aging.
At SENS Research Foundation, we expect our colleagues to adhere to the highest levels of integrity, not only in carrying out the organization’s vitally important mission, but in how they conduct themselves in personal interactions as well. We cannot and do not condone behavior that makes our colleagues and members of our scientific community feel victimized, targeted, or harmed.
We are aware of the allegations against the Foundation’s Chief Science Officer raised by two members of our scientific community, and, when we first learned of the allegations in late June, we worked quickly to retain an independent investigator to investigate these concerns. We quickly placed the employee in question on administrative leave pending the outcome of the investigation.
We respect the integrity of this investigative process, and it would not be appropriate to speculate on the outcomes while the process remains ongoing. We can promise that we will take seriously the findings and, if appropriate, take decisive action.
