Greatest Advances in Anti-Aging for 2009
It’s time to celebrate! It has been a great year at Methuselah and a great year for advances in aging research. Television, newspapers and websites have covered stories on calorie restriction, resveratrol and rapamycin. Leading biologists working in longevity research are finally grabbing the attention of other scientists (this year’s Nobel Prize in Medicine
is a very real example of this), the media and the general public.
Methuselah Foundation is energetically working on new initiatives, connecting with more researchers and predicting some exciting announcements early in 2010. We asked Dave Gobel, the founder, to select his top breakthroughs of the past year. He gave us an interesting list. You might want to consider these as you sip your red wine this season.
DAVE GOBEL’S TOP 5 PICKS:
- Vitamin D3
- Dr. Atala
- Continuous-Flow Ventricular Assist Devices
Learn why Dave picked these 5 (and 2 more) for 2009.

NEAR TERM STRATEGY
Bridge Builders Needed
We are on the verge of launching our near-term strategy to extend healthy life; a wellness community loaded with features that make it an invaluable tool. We need your help. If you are experiencing a life threatening illness, as a patient, caregiver or supporter, become one of the first users of My Bridge 4 Life.
My Bridge 4 Life is a dynamic community program that guides you through the overwhelming natures of a life-threatening diagnosis by helping you divide it into manageable phases, set goals for each phase and build a wellness plan for life in the process. Along the way you’ll receive (and give back) Tips 4 Life from an ever-expanding database of real-world wisdom.
As a beta Bridge Builder volunteer you will help us work out the kinks and, at the same time, you’ll get to take full advantage of the great features of the program. We invite you to build a site (and we’ll make it easy for you). Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
and we’ll answer your questions and get you started.
“Learning about My Bridge 4 Life was truly an “aha” moment. Having an online wellness network that allows access to information, creation of one’s own support team from all different areas of the globe, and building a wellness plan during a major health crisis is a brilliant concept. Roger Holzberg has developed this idea through his own experience with cancer, and the Methuselah Foundation is helping to share and expand his vision with everyone facing life-threatening challenges. ”
