Transmuting Awareness of Longevity & Aging Sciences

The Phaedon Institute was envisioned by a group of distinguished scientists and entrepreneurs to promote a greater degree of synergy, efficient cooperation, and discussion among longevity industry stakeholders that could set rigorous standards and guidance to support the growing community of the emerging field of longevity sciences. 

The Phaedon Institute is aimed to distill solid and sound science, support the leaders and talents, recognize the proper regulatory environment and investment opportunities, and transform the aging and longevity industry.

In addition, the institute recognizes a crucial, compelling need to promote diversity in the aging research workforce. Phaedon Institute is committed to fostering a diverse workforce in aging research, and to ensuring that people from all backgrounds can fully and productively participate in our field.

Key Mission

The Phaedon Institute is defined as a non-profit, tax-exempt national organization of lay and scientific academic, corporate investors and regulators members dedicated to:

Foster Biomedical Aging Research

Promote biomedical aging science directed towards increasing the functional and healthy life span of humans with one goal being to slow the aging process.

Increase Cross-community Knowledge

Develop biogerontology, clinical, and technological knowledge among physicians, scientists, entrepreneurs, and others in the health fields to improve the quality of the human lifespan.

Support Collaboration

Enable opportunities among stakeholders for connections and reinforcing the nodes cross-functionally between all the fields operating in the longevity science, therapeutics, and governance.

Build Awareness

Foster public conversation on the progress of aging research and practical means of achieving a long and healthy life.

What We Do?

The Phaedon Institute elevates awareness, advances solutions, and catalyzes action to promote healthy longevity. Through research, convening, advocacy, and partnership with leaders across sectors, it works to improve lives and build disease-free aging for all.

Why Now?

In the past 100 years, we have achieved groundbreaking milestones in disease diagnosis and treatment and extended a healthy life span. A step change in life expectancy will have vast implications for individuals, governments, and society. To ensure that increases in longevity benefit all, a collaborative approach among different stakeholders is required to drive change and create solutions to equip us for this new reality.

By The Numbers

  • In 2020, the number of people aged 60 years and older outnumbered children younger than 5 years.
  • The 60+ population will generate over half of all urban consumption growth in developed countries between 2015 and 2030.
  • By 2030, 1 in 6 people in the world will be aged 60 years or over (1.4 billion).
  • 52% of Americans who reach age 65 will someday need a high level of help with everyday activities such as bathing, dressing, and eating
  • By 2050, the world’s population of people aged 60 years and older will double (2.1 billion).
