AgeNet - Aging Research Network-Welcome to AgeNet!

AgeNet (Aging Research Network), is a charitable organization whose mission is to create a collaboration to raise awareness of Global Aging and address the barriers to developing therapies able to restore function to mature individuals.  Specifically, the participants in the network recognize the need for multiple historically disparate scientific disciplines to realize synergies to take advantage of new knowledge and capabilities. The network accomplishes this through:

  1. Educating the public of the near-term potential of the development of these technologies.
  2. Funding research relevant to addressing the cellular and molecular damage which lies at the root of all age-related disease.

With these two goals in mind, education and research, the network will seek to obtain financial support from private and public organizations and individuals to lessen the suffering and economic burden of age-related disease through scientific advances able to increase health.

A Landmark Paper

AgeNet held a meeting at Buck Institute for Research on Aging in August of 2009 which involved some of the best minds in aging policy and science.  The resulting paper, The Demographic and Biomedical Case for late-life interventions in aging was published in the prestigious journal of Science Translational Medicine in July of 2010.  The paper was seminal in that not only do the eminent authors assert that the scientific evidence now exists that make slowing the aging process down a possibility, but that new technologies such as those involving stem cells and regenerative medicine, stand to restore function and not just slow down its loss.
