Laura Deming, Partner at The Longevity Fund

Since she was a kid, Laura has been fascinated by the idea that longevity is a mechanism we can manipulate. When she was 12, Laura moved to the US to take graduate coursework at UCSF before studying at MIT. She has worked in such groups as The Kenyon, Guarente, Weiss and Firestein labs on a number of topics, including aging and synthetic biology. In 2011, Laura started Longevity Fund, the first VC firm dedicated to funding high-potential longevity companies. So far, she’s raised $26M and have backed such companies as Unity Biotechnology, Decibel Therapeutics, Metacrine, Navitor, and System1. Building upon this success, Laura created the AGE1 Biotech accelerator to support early stage founder driven longevity companies, which look to develop therapeutics that will extend the human healthspan. Come join us for a conversation about her journey, and how to get involved with the AGE1 community.
