Given enough resources, the first people could get the genetic rejuvenation treatment before 2040, depending on market development it should be available to the common population by 2050 - with an affordable/free fee..(why? See Concerns )

What's the situation?

Aging is not an absolute, its a shapable relative. A chemical process in our cells, a genetically codified principle. But with the recent rapid biotechnological development, for the first time in history, we have the capabilites and the resources to determine our own fate. Unlocking the ability to attain indefinite lifespans is within reach, it would be fatuous not to stretch out and take it.

Bright heads around the world are already working right now to defy Aging, but their number is small and there is so much more that can be done. Whether the defeat of Aging occurs in 30 years or 200 is largely a question of funding. The best way to accelerate this process is by mobilizing those who desire the option of a longer and healthier life into a cohesive social force - crowdfunding relevant research and encouraging for its benefits to society.

Genetic modifications in other species have already achieved great lifespan extensions, as seen for C. elegans (x10 times), Drosophila melanogaster lifespan has been doubled and genetic mutations in mice can increase maximum lifespan to 1.5 times normal. As a non-biologist you have every right to be sceptic, just see the Concerns section and your doubts may be silenced. Biological immortality will not only save up to 100.000 lives per day, but also spare Millions of aging people years of suffering, as well as give society a never seen before economy-boost.

All funding will be used for three purposes, firstly, to setup the Human Immortality Research Institute where research in areas mentioned in Organisms & Cellular Levels will go underway. Second, to create and strengthen international collaboration of Scientists/Institutions working on longevity, and at last to encourage and support more scientists to get active in the field. The amount and speed of the desired research that can and will be done is completely dependent on the amount of funding acquired

Current Organisations contributing to significant Ageing Research

Above are shown all serious aging research institutions and their interconnections. Looking into hundreds and hundreds of age-related organisations, their research areas and what many of them are spending money on was an intense experience constantly leaving one enraged, not knowing whether to cry our to laugh. 90% are just a big joke and you wonder who the hell is in charge of these places. That is, because most are doing exclusively age-related-disease research, which is symptom- and not cause-research. In the overview are those 10% that do significant work towards fundamental ageing research,


Right now, our governments and public institutions are spending billions and billions of dollars on research of ARD‘s (age-related-diseases). This undertaking used to be very valuable, but as it is with science, when new discoveries are made and new knowledge comes to light, a shift of focus has to happen. In the recent past we just didn't know better than to do research on Alzheimer, certain types of cancer, etc., but now we know that there is one root-cause to all of them: Aging. That means that there is a huge misdirected investment happening right now, which in the end will only be profitable for the big pharma companies (because they can continue selling you drugs for each condition). Since the major science community is only doing research on ARD‘s, they are trying to fight the symptoms of ageing, its by-products. A fight against symptoms is always a losing battle in the long run, and anyway, what do you think is easier to tackle, 7 symptom problems or 1 core problem?
