Longhack
"The days when aging was considered natural and inevitable are long gone. Now it's a disease to be treated like any other."

AgeX Therapeutics CEO Dr Michael West
Why hack longevity?
We offer our participants a space to hack aging and increase the lifespan of human beings.

Longevity has been a subject of interest not only among biotech scientists. It has also been romanticized by many novelists and artists. Despite its many appearances in pop culture, few people are aware of its scientific grounds and how far research has progressed.
What to expect
Team up!
You can either bring your own team or team up with other participants.
2 days of hacking
Brainstorm, create, test! You will have the whole weekend to create your prototype.
Innovation
We're open to innovation. Bring your ideas to life with support of our mentors.
Prize
Winning teams will get prizes from our sponsors.
The increasing expectation of human life for the healthcare systems has created increasing difficulties. When people get older, they are increasingly susceptible to chronic diseases and the associated burden of multimorbidity and polypharmacology. Accumulating evidence of laboratory animals has shown that ageing can be improved by genetic and environmental measures.

Diagnostics and Pharma
The world's population trends in population growth and aging show a population growing faster than other age groups, the so-called "oldest" populations. The mean age, the prevalence of chronic diseases, including cancer and cardiovascular diseases, all related co-morbidities and late-life handicaps is consequently increasing. Lifespan lengthening is based on the improvement of the services of public health (this leads to better preventive strategies) and higher levels of education, leading to a healthy lifestyle with a positive net improvement in quality of life.

AI and Bioinformatics in Longevity
Increases in computational power and the accessibility of broadly available datasets have fostered the growth in AI in recent advances in the field of machine learning (ML). These developments have led to significant investment and hype, with many data scientists. If you are one of those, choose this track.
