Research on longevity, or fighting aging as a disease, has several things in the way of its progress. These range from technical complexity, to regulatory barriers, to negative public perceptions and misunderstandings of life extension. The largest hurdle, however, is funding. It’s difficult to deny the profound impact more funding would have on discoveries made and advances achieved in the field of aging. [1,2,3] More funding means more shots on goal, but innovation on how that funding is deployed is also desperately needed.

The current state of biomedical research funding is a fraught topic, every step of the way. In…


Why VitaDAO

VitaDAO’s mission is to accelerate research and development in the longevity space by focusing on the two stakeholder groups most essential to its mission: patients and researchers. Currently, biopharma and research organizations do not represent these groups well. Biomedical research fundraising is time-consuming and its access is limited to select groups of already well funded organizations. There is a misalignment of incentives that encourage profit maximization by for-profit biopharma companies, and conversely not enough goal-oriented work is done by non-profit research organizations.

VitaDAO fixes this by coordinating the actions of for-profits and non-profits. …


VitaDAO launches through a Gnosis Auction running from June 18 to June 23. Gnosis Auction optimizes for fair and decentralized token distributions.

For Dr. Morten Scheibye-Knudsen — associate professor at the University of Copenhagen — aging is the largest risk factor for most diseases, and damage to our genome is likely the cause of aging.

Morten is focused on exploring the physiological consequences of DNA damage and what we can do to intervene in genotoxic insults. His goal is to understand, modulate, and treat aging and age-related diseases.

What personally fascinates you about the field of longevity, and how did you get into it?

David: “That’s not a simple question, and my journey was not direct. When I began my graduate school training, I elected to pursue a career…


Dr. Aubrey de Grey is a biomedical gerontologist based in Mountain View, California, USA, and is the Chief Science Officer of SENS Research Foundation, a biomedical research charity that performs and funds laboratory research dedicated to combating aging.

His research interests encompass the characterization of all the types of self-inflicted cellular and molecular damage that constitute mammalian aging and the design of interventions to repair and obviate that damage.

Dr. de Grey will participate in the longevity working group and advise on the general strategy of the DAO. …
