The SENS Research Foundation, a nonprofit research fund to combat aging, received a donation of $ 2.4 million from Ethereum founder Vitalik Buterin. All funds were received in the Ether, the fund reported in a press release.

SENS Research Foundation was founded in 2009 by Aubrey de Gray, a British gerontologist, who is researching rejuvenating therapies to extend the biological limit of people's lives. He is also the author of the popular science book "Ending Aging", which addresses the issue of a complete victory over aging medicine in the next few decades.

I've been a fan of Aubrey's work since I first read Ending Aging when I was a teenager, and I am happy to have been blessed with the opportunity to personally support SENS's efforts. Their focus on creating solutions to the diseases of aging, one of the greatest problems facing humanity, is very much in line with my goal to positively impact the lives of millions of people around the world.

Founder, Ethereum

At the end of 2017, at the Virtual Futures conference in London, Aubrey de Gray said that the first person who will live to be 1000 years old will not just be born in some hypothetical future, but has already been born. He also believes that science will find a way to improve the quality of therapy aimed at eliminating age-related changes in the body within the next 20 years.

It is noteworthy that earlier the SENS Research Foundation received two large donations totaling $ 2 million in bitcoins from the Pineapple Fund - covered by the secret of an anonymous charitable foundation, which, among other things, provided financial support to the Internet Archive and a number of other organization.
