Saudi Arabia Pumps More Money Into Longevity (Longevity Technology)

The Global Healthspan Summit in Riyadh marked a significant milestone in aging research, with Hevolution Foundation announcing an impressive $40 million in grants, elevating the event’s total commitment to nearly $100 million. This funding surge benefits key organizations like the Buck Institute and the American Federation of Aging Research, receiving $21 million and $16 million respectively, to accelerate aging research and support early-career scientists.

Hevolution’s ambition, with a budget up to $1 billion, focuses on advancing aging science and improving healthspan through faster drug development and increased treatment accessibility. CEO Dr. Mehmood Khan emphasizes their commitment to healthspan science and global collaboration.

Additionally, $5 million is dedicated to 15 postdoctoral fellowships in Saudi Arabia, aiming at advancements in aging biology. The summit, hosting over 120 speakers, underscores the urgency in addressing the aging crisis, especially with the impending doubling of the global over-60 population by 2050.

European AI Project Secures €21m for Early Alzheimer’s detection (Longevity Technology)

The PREDICTOM project, a collaborative AI initiative, has received a significant boost with $23 million funding to pioneer early detection of Alzheimer’s disease. 

As dementia cases in the EU are expected to double to 14 million by 2050, PREDICTOM’s role becomes increasingly crucial. This investment will fuel the development of an AI screening platform capable of identifying individuals at risk before symptoms appear, a vital strategy given the absence of a cure for Alzheimer’s. 

The project, steered by a consortium of 30 partners including Stavanger University Hospital, represents a broad coalition of academia, business, and healthcare institutions. Funded by Horizon Europe and the Innovative Health Initiative, PREDICTOM exemplifies a united front in tackling one of the most significant health challenges of our time.


As this week’s exploration of longevity concludes, it’s evident that the synergy of investment, technology, and healthcare innovation is accelerating the pace of progress in this field.

 We’ve witnessed how Forward Health’s CarePods are redefining primary care, blending AI’s precision with healthcare’s human touch. The substantial financial commitment at the Global Healthspan Summit in Riyadh, especially Hevolution Foundation’s notable grant allocation, underscores a robust global interest in extending healthspan. The PREDICTOM project’s focus on early Alzheimer’s detection marks another significant stride, leveraging AI to confront a growing global health challenge.

These developments collectively signal a transformative era in longevity, where innovation, collaboration, and investment converge to craft a future where extended healthspan is not just a possibility but a reality within reach.
