What's Open Longevity?
We are a community of rationally-minded people. We rather prefer life over death, especially young and healthy life. We are against aging and support using a scientific approach to fight it.

Aging is complicated
But we want to figure it out during our lifetime.
We are looking for solutions in the scientific and technical spheres: biology, medicine, bioinformatics. From healthy lifestyles with proven efficacy and reviews of what science already knows, to the launch of new research. But that's not all.
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 of better social and organizational solutions.
Co-founder & CEO
What exactly are we doing?
These are not just our projects. Potentially, these are your projects too. Join now!
Longevity Hits
We are collecting information on geroprotectors—substances that have shown life extension effect on any model organism or even human.

More information is to be shared soon.
Extracting structured knowledge from scientific papers

Compare the results of thousands of studies based on the parameters you need, create a database, and train machine learning models. Our goal is to make it easier for you to make decisions about experiments and investments, to enable you to keep abreast of the latest research without wasting time analyzing a massive number of articles.
Who are we?
Yes, we have not only two founders but two CEOs.
Misha Batin
