As some of you are probably aware, we are currently running a campaign at Lifespan.io to develop new tools to aid in the targeting and removal of dysfunctional senescent cells, which contribute to various age-related disease.
We feel this synthetic biology approach could be an extremely powerful tool to have in our collective arsenal, so please check out the campaign page if you have not yet and share your questions and thoughts. We've also put together some Q&A videos with the project lead here based on community input if you'd like more info.
Seeking Matching Funds
To correct for the campaign competing with the holidays and other large-scale fundraisers like SENS thus far, we are considering a 30 day campaign extension to help it reach it's goal (as suggested to us by numerous emails). We would like to couple this with an announcement of matching funds, which would essentially allow us to reset the momentum button and drive the campaign forward to its goal.
We are hoping this is something the community here can help with: so if any person or coalition here would like to step up to help this research get to the next level please feel free to comment or contact me, either here or by email keith[at]lifespan[dot]io. I'm also happy to talk via Skype or Google Hangouts to answer any questions and/or discuss the project.
Thanks for your time and support!
