The Vitae Institute is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization incorporated in 2006 to forward a scientific understanding of the mechanisms of aging and to develop technology and therapies to cure age-associated pathologies. Despite the existence of many organizations formed for the purpose of elucidating the mechanisms of aging and developing life extension technology, few contribute to these purported ends. I therefore believe that with the activities and ideology described on this website, the Vitae Institute is poised to play a significant role in accelerating the realization of bona fide life extension technologies.

Please see the "Mission+History" page for more information about the current state of aging research, and the "Goals+Projects" page for more information about how the Vitae Institute plans to accelerate the development of life extension technology. Please consider a tax-exempt donation, and please do not hesitate to contact us at .
