The Maximon Longevity Prize
The Maximon Longevity Prize for Translational Research awards outstanding breakthrough research in the field of longevity that can be translated for clinical or non-clinical applications and has the potential to substantially increase health span or life span of humans.
The award focuses on research that already has a proof of concept in pre-clinical lab studies to have a significant impact on the health optimization or longevity.
Maximon is on a mission to extend the health span and to allow people to be fit, healthy and happy until high-age.
We are accelerating longevity research by giving exceptional researchers the resources they need to expand their work and invest in new products and services geared to a longevity-society.
Maximon pledges 50 000 CHF for the winner.
The prize recipients will also receive additional benefits from sponsors such as:
