SENS Research Foundation is a 501(c)(3) public charity that is transforming the way the world researches and treats age-related disease.
The research it funds at universities around the world and at its own Research Center uses regenerative medicine to repair the damage underlying the diseases of aging.
The SENS Research Foundation’s goal is to help build the industry that will cure these diseases.
Our support of the SENS Research Foundation consisted of two grants in 2015: (a) core, unrestricted support grant, and (b) matching funding challenge grant.
Core Support Grant
This core unrestricted usage grant was extended to the SENS Foundation to support their activities during the period of April – December, 2015, which—among others—included:
- 2nd Rejuvenation Biotechnology Conference in Burlingame CA in August, 2015. This conference directly resulted in at least two scientific collaborations and brought together 50 speakers and over 300 attendees.
- 1st Research Symposium which was attended by all of SRF’s funded researchers.
- Publication of SRF funded researcher Dr. David Spiegel’s (Yale University) research in the Science Magazine.
- Expansion of SRF’s education program and support of 16 interns.
- Feature of an article by the OncoSENS team on its research into ALT by The Scientist Magazine.
Matching Funding Challenge Grant
Our second grant was subject to 1:1 matching funding raised by SENS during #GivingTuesday on December 1, 2015. SENS managed to raise USD27,312 (a double from #GivingTuesday 2014) and together with our matching grant and those of other donors, the total amount of funds raised was USD74,634.
