Thank you for your contributions to the Future of Longevity Impact Roadmap! The discussions in this community have helped XPRIZE understand the challenges that need to be overcome to extend human lifespans and identify potential breakthroughs in longevity.

The Impact Roadmap is now complete. You can browse the interactive version on the XPRIZE website and download the full report.

The discussion forums about obstacles to long life, innovations in life extension and breakthroughs in longevity will be closed, but alumni of this project are invited to join the Future of Longevity Group to continue the conversation and stay in touch.

Success at the XPRIZE Foundation by Keith Comito

Keith Comito writes about his Longevity Lab experience for the Life Extension Advocacy Foundation:
On April 29th and 30th, the XPRIZE Foundation hosted an event at its headquarters in Culver City, California that could have a profound effect on the evolving landscape of biorejuvenation research: the Future of Longevity Impact Roadmap Lab.

For those unfamiliar, the XPRIZE Foundation is famous for designing multi-million-dollar, global competitions to incentivize the development of technological breakthroughs, perhaps the most well-known being its first: the Ansari XPRIZE, which offered a $10,000,000 award for the first non-governmental organization to launch a reusable manned spacecraft into space twice within two weeks.

With this event, the purpose of which was to gather subject matter experts to brainstorm a potential longevity-research prize, XPRIZE has turned its focus towards solving the critical problem of age-related diseases on society and extending healthy human lifespan for all. As I was fortunate enough to directly participate in this exciting meeting, I’d like to share some of my experiences with you all.

    @LisaCovington @NickOttens I'm glad you like the article and thank you for sharing. If it is appropriate for the newsletter feel free to mention our upcoming July conference as well ( http://lifespan.io/conference ), as it would be great to see some of the Longevity Lab attendees again!
