The Methuselah Mouse Prize (or Mprize) is the premiere effort of The Methuselah Foundation; a scientific competition in mouse longevity designed to draw attention to the ability of new technologies to slow and even reverse the damage of the aging process. Today we’d like to draw your attention to the Mprize Scientific Advisory Board – the folk who have been helping to make the Mprize for longevity research a success.
This year in June we had our first official meeting of the new Mprize Scientific Advisory Board and great discussions ensued. The MPSAB is one of core components of the Mprize and the value of having the experience and engagement of these individuals is clear. These are gentlemen who couple their expertise with the effective influence of a competitive prize to help push the need for aging research into the mainstream.
The board has become something of a who’s who for early initiatives in engineering mouse longevity – just the way it should be in order to further expand efforts to increase healthy life spans in mice using technologies that may later be applied to humans.
