We Are Building a Future Free of Age-Related Disease

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.

We are happy to announce that Dr. Ravi Jain has joined our team as Vice President of Research. He has previously served as a consultant for SRF and we are very excited to welcome him to his new role. Please visit our TEAM page to learn more about him and our amazing Team.

Education Highlight -

We are thrilled to open applications for the 2023 Postbaccalaureate and Summer Scholars programs!

The SRF Postbaccalaureate Fellowship Program offers recent graduates a gap year option to strengthen research and communication skills in preparation for opportunities such as graduate & medical programs, and biotech positions.

The SRF Summer Scholars Program offers undergraduate students the opportunity to conduct biomedical research to combat diseases of aging, such as cancer, Alzheimer’s, and Parkinson’s Disease under the guidance of a scientific mentor.

Join us for an impactful learning experience bound to grow you as a scientist and prepare you for your next step in contributing to a future free of age-related disease!


Senolytics in Aging Muscle: Could the Cure Be Worse than the Disease?

Skeletal muscles are organized into long fibers, and when a fiber breaks the entire fiber is often lost. This made a supporter worry that senolytic therapies might break a muscle fiber and eliminate precious fibers in aging muscles. It appears that the injury at the heart of the questioner’s worry does not happen in practice.

More Studies on Metformin and Survival

In this update, we review two recent papers that address the question of people with type 2 diabetes who take metformin living longer than people without the disease who don’t, but without the flaw in the 2014 study. We find that, as expected, metformin is a good diabetes drug but shows no sign of being a longevity therapeutic.

Sponsor a Student

SENS Research Foundation (SRF) is launching its campaign Sponsor a Student to increase charitable donations that will allow it to hire more student researchers and teach them that aging is not indisputable. Sponsoring a student dramatically transforms a young person’s life, giving them a chance to conduct world-class research and learn more about the career that awaits them.
