The American Federation for Aging Research (AFAR) is a national non-profit organization that supports and advances pioneering biomedical research that is revolutionizing how we live healthier and longer.
For nearly four decades, AFAR has served as the field’s talent incubator, providing more than $178 million to more than 4,100 investigators at premier research institutions nationwide. A trusted leader and strategist, AFAR also works with public and private funders to steer high quality grant programs and interdisciplinary research networks. AFAR-funded researchers are finding that modifying basic cellular processes can delay—or even prevent—many chronic diseases, often at the same time. They are discovering that it is never too late—or too early—to improve health. This groundbreaking science is paving the way for innovative new therapies that promise to improve and extend our quality of life—at any age.

Longevity International is a social enterprise bringing together start-ups, industry, academic, and governmental stakeholders under one umbrella to provide a unified voice and coordinating vehicle for positive discourse and change to ensure the ‘longevity dividend’ is accessible to everyone around the world.
Longevity International is the secretariat for the All Party Parliamentary Group for Longevity in the UK, set up in March 2019 to address the scientific, technological, and socio-economic issues relating to our aging demographic and promote living younger, healthier, and longer lives. The APPG is aiming to produce, with partners and experts, a draft National Strategy by the end of 2019 setting out what the United Kingdom needs to do to meet the goal set by government of five more years of healthy life expectancy by 2035 (HLE + 5) and at the same time to close the large social gap in healthy life expectancy.
Through an ambitious action plan in 2020, the APPG aims to turn the ‘problem’ of aging into one of the most promising opportunities of the 21st century – and secure Britain’s place as a global leader in longevity by providing access to the ‘longevity dividend’ to everyone equitably in society.
