RESEARCH INSTITUTES: BIOSCIENCE, LIFE EXTENSION



Barshop Institute for Longevity and Aging Studies

 

The Barshop Institute for Longevity and Aging Studies at San Antonio, Texas, is dedicated to the promotion of healthy aging for everyone. Its world-class scientific community of researchers and physicians seek discoveries to treat and ameliorate the underlying causes of aging, a cost-effective approach to broadly enhance the quality of later life.

BioCurious

BioCurious is the World’s First Hackerspace for Bio, Built in the Heart of Silicon Valley. We are a community of scientists, technologists, entrepreneurs, and amateurs who believe that innovations in biology should be accessible, affordable, and open to everyone. Located in Sunnyvale, CA, our co-working laboratory space and shared equipment is ideal for entrepreneurs, citizen scientists, hobbyists, and students.

Buck Institute for Research on Aging

 The Buck Institute at Novato, California, is the nation’s first independent research facility focused solely on understanding the connection between aging and chronic disease. Our mission is to increase the healthy years of life.

Institute for Healthy Aging, University of North Texas 

Age influences the frequency and progression of nearly all diseases and profoundly impacts our resistance to injury and ability to recover. The Institute for Healthy Aging integrates state-of-the-art clinical care, cutting edge-research, innovative education and training, and community engagement, to create solutions for a new era of enduring quality of life.

Major Mouse Testing Program

The Major Mouse Testing Programme is a project that aims to speed up the pace of progress by rapidly testing longevity interventions – meaning research which would have taken 100 years at today’s rate can be done in five. It is also plausible that some interventions, when combined could have a synergy where the effects are greater than the individual compounds, this has certainly been the case with Dasatinib & Quercetin. It is likely there are more synergies to be discovered and this is where the MMTP plans to push forward, not only testing single interventions but also combinations to seek out these powerful combinations.

SENS Research Foundation
The SRF Research Center is our internal research laboratory, and the core of our intramural research efforts. In our lab, researchers undertake proof-of-concept research in rejuvenation biotechnologies, seeking to comprehensively address the disabilities and diseases of aging by repairing the damage done by the aging process at the molecular level. We are currently conducting in-house work in two separate areas: allotopic expression to prevent damage from mitochondrial mutations and an exploration of the genetic mechanisms of telomerase-independent telomere elongation.

Wake Forest Institute for Regenerative Medicine (WFIRM) 

The Wake Forest Institute for Regenerative Medicine (WFIRM) is a leader in translating scientific discovery into clinical therapies. Physicians and scientists at WFIRM were the first in the world to engineer laboratory-grown organs that were successfully implanted into humans. Today, this interdisciplinary team is working to engineer more than 30 different replacement tissues and organs and to develop healing cell therapies - all with the goal to cure, rather than merely treat, disease.
