In response to the recent progress report from Methuselah Foundation chairman Aubrey de Grey, we are pleased to note that the Glenn Foundation for Medical Research has stepped forward in greater support of Foundation-funded SENS research with the offer of an additional $50,000 donation.
Paul F. Glenn, founder of the Glenn Foundation, said, “We have been following the progress of Aubrey de Grey’s ideas with interest, and the Thiel matching pledge allows us to leverage our funds in a highly efficient way.”
You might recall that Paul F. Glenn is the force behind the new aging research institute at Harvard – this is the face of aging research that is not afraid to stand up and talk openly about extending healthy life span by understanding and beating back the mechanisms of degeneration.
The Paul F. Glenn Laboratory is dedicated to understanding the mechanisms of normal aging and the development of interventions to delay its onset and progression, thereby extending the healthy years of human life.
Seeking to accelerate the pace of research into the molecular mechanisms that govern aging, Harvard Medical School and philanthropist Paul F. Glenn, an alumnus of Harvard Law School and founder of the Glenn Foundation for Medical Research have launched the Paul F. Glenn Laboratories for the Biological Mechanisms of Aging. The new resources will serve as a magnet to attract additional support for the potential creation of a larger Institute for Aging Research at Harvard Medical School.
