How to Defeat Aging?
The quest to extend healthy human lifespan has reached a critical juncture, with two competing theories vying for dominance: Can we reverse aging, or merely slow it down? This question will take center stage in a landmark debate, "How to Defeat Aging," featuring scientific heavyweights Aubrey de Grey and Peter Fedichev.
Aging is complicated
But we need to figure it out during our lifetime
We are turning to science for solutions: molecular biology, computer science, chemistry, sociology and interdisciplinary research. We're focusing on the boldest pioneering solutions often going where others refuse to tread. We will never give up!
We consider the task of finding a cure for old age the most important one. It is a scientific task, and the majority of our effort is being applied in this field. But we have to be honest with ourselves: the research and development in anti-aging lack the needed scale and pace. That's why we are also in constant search for better solutions, innovating on every level to support the development of new approaches to old problems.
Co-founder & CEO
These are not just our projects. Potentially, these are your projects too. Join now!
Our database helps researchers study genetics of aging and related processes. Collects info on evolution of gene, its functions, and methods to determine if associated with aging and life expectancy.
Attitude towards death and life extension
We are conducting a survey on people's attitudes towards the ideas of transhumanism, life extension, and the fight against aging.
Unlocking data to accelerate science
A highly secure decentralized platform for scientific data publication with benefits for researchers that provide data
Global grassroots campaign
International grassroots activist group works relentlessly to raise awareness and educate the public on the potential for a world where aging is eradicated.
Each week we will offer you to meet another longevity enthusiast and take away the awkwardness of making that first contact.

Network theory in aging
Using the developments of the cutting edge of mathematical physics, we are going to study the aging of various organisms, analyzing it as the dynamics of a complex network system
Art residence curated by Dasha Ilyashenko in which 14 artists created works based on and inspired by lectures of leading scientists and transhumanist philosophers.
Experiments store
The idea is to conduct open experiments that would help us to get closer to a radical extension of human lifespan. We believe the selection of combinations for gene therapy to be the most promising direction.
Our mission is to develop a therapy that prevents age-related degradation of the extracellular matrix (ECM). We are focused on small molecules that have the potential to slow down aging, and protect people from diabetes, cardiovascular and Alzheimer's diseases, by inhibiting cross-linking in the extracellular matrix.
Since biological aging is a complex phenomenon, this document discusses the widest possible range of fundamental research and applied developments in the field of aging and body rejuvenation. All research and development proposed by this roadmap should make it easier to achieve the goal of reversal the biological aging of a person.
We need to figure out the best strategy for all the people and companies involved in the industry. Preferably the united strategy. The first step is to collect and analyze other roadmaps and plans in the field. We invite you to join this work. There is a lot to look through.
In Open Longevity, we believe in the power of art. So we present you with EXPEDITION FOR IMMORTALITY. Misha Batin's philosophical movies, a travel vlog. Metamodernism in transhumanism. Why prolong one's life? Why is there no cure for old age yet? And what should we do about it?
