The following principles guide the Longevity Science Foundation (LSF) in its efforts to qualitatively accelerate longevity industry worldwide:
The Longevity Science Foundation is a 501 (c)(3) registered non-profit organization established as a global leader in the field of longevity with a primary focus on providing grant support for early-stage longevity research. The LSF adheres to the highest auditability and transparency standards in its operations, partnering with leading consulting companies to ensure financial and operational reporting are readily available to all participants.
The LSF actively prevents discrimination in the research process by using identical valuation techniques on all project/funding proposals with no differentiation based on the institution submitting the proposal. The Foundation believes that all project applications should have an equal opportunity to be considered for funding, regardless of geography or previous academic merit.
One of the key components of the The LSF's guiding principles is to include its contributors in decision-making processes and, where possible, as early adopters of longevity technologies incepted using the Foundation’s funding. The Foundation aims to partner with a variety of supporters from biotech and non-biotech stakeholders, individual contributors, corporate and biopharma companies, research institutions, and venture funds worldwide.
The LSF relies heavily on the expertise of its Scientific Board members. The Scientific Board defines the research vectors the Foundation will be looking at over a specified period, pre-vetting and shortlisting the projects submitted for funding after the Foundation's due-diligence team has completed their assessment.
A core mission of the Foundation is to accelerate longevity research globally, providing a qualitative push to the industry as a whole. Therefore, the Foundation processes its funding decisions based on the potential impact, relevance, and ability of the project to advance longevity research in the areas pre-defined by the Foundation's Scientific Board.
