New members will help to ensure aging research breakthroughs are accelerated – and also made accessible to everyone.
The Academy for Health and Lifespan Research, a global non-profit group focused on accelerating breakthroughs in the expansion of the human healthspan, has announced the organization’s 2023 inductees.
Longevity.Technology: The Academy for Health and Lifespan Research has serious longevity cred. Its Members represent various disciplines in the aging ecosystem and are engaged in disparate approaches, but all share the common goal of the reduction and reversal of age-related declines and illnesses. Founded by 16 of the world’s leading gerontologists (Sinclair, Barzilai, Verdin, Horvath, Kirkland, Campisi, Rando…) the Academy’s goal is to ensure that breakthroughs in aging research are not only accelerated but also made accessible to all.
The newest inductees were nominated and voted on by some of these leading geroscientists.
“The 2023 inductees are an elite group that bring a wide range of expertise, knowledge and experience to The Academy as we work collectively to not only achieve breakthroughs in longevity research, but more importantly, make them accessible to all,” said Dr David Sinclair, professor of genetics at Harvard Medical School and co-director of its Paul F Glenn Center for Biology of Aging Research .
“We are excited to welcome these new members who illustrate the wide range of talent in the science of aging ecosystem, as we all do the important work of bringing the level of attention and funding that longevity initiatives deserve and demand.” said Dr Nir Barzilai, director of the Institute for Aging Research at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine .
“We welcome the new members to the Academy and look forward to working with them and the entire membership to shape government policy, the future of the longevity field, and scientific advances that will positively impact medicine and people’s daily lives,” said Dr Eric Verdin, CEO of the Buck Institute for Research on Aging .
