Elena Milova is a board member of Life Extension Advocacy Foundation and Lifespan.io – the only crowdfunding platform, dedicated to supporting studies on the main mechanisms of aging and age-related diseases.
Previously Elena has worked as a project manager in the pharmaceutical and advertisement industries, helping to promote new drugs and therapies. This experience helped her to realize that the existing therapies were not 100% effective and could not completely stop age-related diseases – this ignited her interest in rejuvenation biotechnologies.
The last few years have seen Elena leading some fruitful advocacy projects in Russia, aimed at spreading the idea of healthy longevity among decision makers as well as the general public. She is a co-author of the book “Aging Prevention for Everyone” (in Russian, 2015, soon to be published in English) and a blogger covering a wide range of problems related to population aging.
In 2016, she helped to shape and coordinate the successful crowdfunding campaign of the Major Mouse Testing Program (a project by the International Longevity Alliance) – a study of Senolytic drug combinations on mouse lifespan.
Elena is a member of Russian Transhumanist Movement, supporting the various projects of this group.
