In 1977, I founded Life Extension® which has grown into the world’s largest anti-aging medical group. As I aged past 60 years it became apparent that younger trustworthy individuals were needed to help oversee many of the perpetual research projects I established. I met Nuno Martins in 2009 and have found his broad array of scientific talents and impeccable integrity make him an ideal fiduciary to provide oversight for many of these long term charitable endeavours.

Bruce J. Klein

I’ve known Dr. Nuno Martins since 2009, when he was one of the first participants in Singularity University’s inaugural class located at NASA Ames in Mountain View, Ca. His tenacity for pushing forward important humanitarian projects is unquestionable. His ability to bring brilliant minds together to advance leading edge ideas is certainly proven. And as a friend and avid supporter, I’m always ready help Nuno in whatever endeavor he chooses to focus on next. It will certainly be important!

Bruce founded the Immortality Institute (LongeCity) in 2002, and participated in the creation of Singularity University and the AGI Conference series.

José Luis Cordeiro, MBA, Ph.D.

I have known Nuno since 2009, where he was part of the first group of students in Singularity University at the NASA Ames Research Park. During that inaugural class, he demonstrated to be incredibly self motivated and interested in a great range of subjects, from artificial intelligence to medical biotechnology. He is a real polymath and we joked that “nanotechnology” should be called “nunotechnology” because of Nuno’s special interest in this area. No doubt, he has also done very fascinating research in nanotechnology and other leading edge technologies that will define the future of humanity.

José Luis Cordeiro, MBA, Ph.D. studied at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in Cambridge, USA, where he earned his Bachelor of Science (B.Sc.) and Master of Science (M.Sc.) degrees in Mechanical Engineering, with a minor in Economics and Languages. He started his doctoral work at MIT, which he continued later in Tokyo, Japan, and finally earned his Ph.D. at Universidad Simón Bolívar (USB) in Caracas, Venezuela.

Aubrey de Grey, Ph.D.

Nuno is a dedicated and energetic entrepreneur, a skilled and motivated researcher, and a good friend. He is supremely committed to the crusade to defeat aging and alleviate the suffering that it causes. Nuno’s published research papers in innovative fields are important and demonstrate his abiity to contribute to improving the human condition.

Aubrey de Grey, Ph.D., FGSA is coauthor of Ending Aging: The Rejuvenation Breakthroughs That Could Reverse Human Aging in Our Lifetime. He earned his Ph.D. in Biology at the University of Cambridge in the United Kingdom and is Chief Science Officer and Cofounder of the SENS Research Foundation.
