Become a Collaborative Partner!

Although testing is performed by the Buck Institute for Research on Aging, Rutgers University and the University of Oregon, this project is designed to involve collaboration with other investigators. These prospective collaborators can be investigators from institutions, universities, or any other organization with ideas of interventions that promote healthy aging and extend lifespan.

We invite all scientists to recommend interventions they believe are worth testing. Each intervention suggested should include a rationale. This includes (but is not limited to):

  • Previously published or unpublished work on the proposed intervention relating to health and/or lifespan

  • Recommendation about the proper dose

  • Suggested treatment protocol (i.e. solubility, sensitivities, etc.)

  • Potential source for the material (i.e. vendor, cost, etc.)

If selected, the prospective collaborator will be asked to help analyze the collected data sets and participate in preparation of coauthored publications.
