'Lifespan.io' is a new crowdfunding platform that helps fund research on human longevity. While there are a number of online fundraising platforms, Lifespan.io is the only website dedicated to backing research on age-related conditions.

The platform operates similarly to Kickstarter, meaning backers can browse through different projects that are currently raising research funds. When a user finds a project that they wish to support, they can then read through a description of exactly what the team is working on and how the funds will be used. The projects on the website deal with age-related conditions and other types of research surrounding human longevity.

The goal of the new website is to raise money to support research that might add extra years to our productive lives.
