One of the challenges LSF solves is the lack of accessible education about longevity.
While society has moved past some initial misconceptions about longevity treatments, many are still unaware of the proximity of longevity breakthroughs. LSF supports research that will bring new discoveries out of the lab and into the publicsphere. And this all is happening sooner than expected.There are also valid concerns that, when introduced, longevity treatments will only be available to the wealthiest and most well-connected individuals. However, LSF work is dedicated to supporting projects that will offer accessible interventions on a larger scale.
“We are currently reviewing our first round of funding proposals for projects related to aging clocks and other longevity adjacent areas, of which we have received more than 100 to date. After being vetted by our expert Visionary Board, our donors will vote on their top choices and select final projects for LSF support. Our second funding call for psychedelic mental health applications is open until June 30th. We plan to launch additional calls on other vital topics every year,” Lisa said
In 2022, LSF supported the launch of the Healthy Longevity Medicine Society (HLMS), an organization dedicated to setting standards and establishing collaboration within the longevity medicine field. This organizartion has the potential to reach all of us, as HLMS members will be working to develop the fundamental principles of longevity care for adoption in physician offices and clinics around the world.
“All of our funded projects are evaluated for their impact potential. We specifically look for projects that are likely to reach human use within the next five years. An example of this is our funding call on psychedelic mental health treatments, which can help treat difficult mentalhealth conditions like PTSD and addiction,” Lisa explains.
