AgelessAnimals.org is a research effort started in 1995 by Director John C. Guerin. The
project's focus is understanding how long-lived animals are so successful at retarding
aging, and applying this knowledge to extend the healthy lifespan of humans. These animals
include rockfish, turtles and whales, all documented to live 200 years or longer without
showing signs of aging.
The project's research is now uncovering the mechanisms that
allow continued vitality in these long-lived animals. With that knowledge it will help us
understand why humans are healthy for many years, but then start having more and more
age-related problems. Because of our aging population, the research will have enormous
benefits for humanity, not only in greater health and enjoyment of later years, but in
controlling the escalating costs of Social Security and medical care.
Only a few projects in the world study long-lived animals. AgelessAnimals reports the
latest research to both general and gerontological audiences. Current research from 14
pilot studies, located at twelve universities around the United States and two in Europe,
encompass topics from Free-radical damage to DNA Micro-array gene expression.
It has operated almost entirely with volunteer effort by both the director and the
research institutions involved. Although many promising pilot studies have been started,
the project cannot secure more samples and expand its scope without financial support from
concerned individuals like yourself.
In addition to being director of this project, John C. Guerin also holds a position as
Research Associate at Kronos Longevity Research Institute (KLRI). As a non-profit
organization, KLRI manages donations on behalf of AgelessAnimals and allows your donation
