SENS Research Foundation is a world-leading, pioneering organisation in undertaking and funding research into ways in which to repair the harmful effects of the aging proces in our bodies which detract from our ability to enjoy life and lead to all of the age-related illnesses such as Alzheimers, heart disease, osteoporosis, type II diabetes, arthritis... The work they do is helping towards a future where we can all live much longer lives in good health, a cause which I think should be important to all of us.

By supporting SENS you are helping yourself and those you love! Ageing is not some abstract or far-away issue - it will happen to everyone, you included unless we can raise enough money to seriously accelerate the research. SENS foundation inspired me to change my career to involve directly in research - not everyone will be able to do that, but you can always engage in advocacy and donate money to help the community reach the goals faster.

SENS Research Foundation is working on the most important issue facing humanity - aging and the fatal diseases that accompany it. More people die from age-related diseases than any other cause... over 100,000 people per day. Imagine a world where we stay active and healthy regardless of our chronological age, and death is a rare thing. This is an issue that effects everyone, and supporting SENS Research will benefit everyone, for generations to come. Proud to be a recurring donor!

Definitely the best nonprofit in the field of rejuvenation. I am so happy I found them and have been giving them monthly donations since then. It's so important that everyone should contribute as much as they can, so that in a common effort we can speed up the research and save the lives of our loved ones and our own.

I've always wanted to end aging since I was 5 years old. After reading Aubrey de grays book ending aging and reaserching other companies working towards immortality I firmly believe Sens will be the most likely to succeed. This organization has given my life the definitive answer as to what I want to do with my life.

SRF pursues the largely overlooked tragedy of aging - a phenomenon of the body that, without greater awareness and funding, will likely end the lives of countless billions. SRF researches therapies attacking the root cause of aging: accumulation of damage. In particular, it focuses on the more overlooked components of a comprehensive anti-aging regimen, and it works to kick-start private sector research in areas related to this, making SRF a key player in hastening the development of comprhesnive anti-aging therapies. Since over 100,000 people die of aging each day, every second counts and could potentially make a difference of thousands of lives. The importance of donating to this cause is compounded by the fact that it has been, so far, woefully negleted, although this is rapidly changing for the better. I, myself, donate and regularly keep up with new developments coming out of the foundation, and I look forward to seeing what SRF will accomplish in the coming years.

The SENS Research Foundation are conducting research that could benefit every single person on the planet. They are very responsive to emails and communication, and run a very tight ship financially so that you know as much of your donation as possible is going towards research. The founders, particularly Aubrey de Grey, are even harder working than people in your average charity, as thinking about aging and death is horrible, and for now, inevitable. Horrid inevitable things are areas that humans have evolved psychological coping mechanisms not to think about, and even become upset if people insist on talking about them. So Aubrey and co have to cope with flack due to this when speaking to the public, or even a fair percentage of their "more logical" peers in the scientific community. That they take on this difficult task is inspiring.

These days, there is a barrage of web sites and fund raising campaigns going on for rejuvenation technologies. It can be easy to become overwhelmed and feel unsure about where your donation dollars can help most.

This is what SENS solves. Led by the visionary Aubrey de Grey, SENS has not only a vision for robust human rejuvenation, but a definite plan how to get there, and what research and outcomes will be requires to achieve it. When I donate to SENS, I know that my donation is going to the place that most needs funding right now, to get us to a world without the diseases of old age. And who wouldn't want that!

SENS is targeting the biggest cause of suffering, death and disease in the world - the biological process of aging. Thanks to biotechnology and innovative approaches we may one day be able to entirely prevent age related disease like cancer, alzheimer's, heart disease and more. They have my full support!

I support the SENS Research Foundation because of its tireless work to raise awareness of the potential for solutions to the universal problems of aging and its practical, targetted research in this field. The foundation promotes a 'repair' or 'engineering' approach to solving the damage caused by aging which leads to us becoming vulnerable to the diseases and disabilities associated with increasing age. I am convinced by their arguments that this is an important approach that can have ground-breaking effects in the coming years in terms of longer and healthier lives for everyone if suitable funds are provided for the work that must be done.
