Michael Cooper has generously offered to donate more than $23,000 to the Methuselah Mouse Prize for anti-aging research if enough additional donations arrive to push the final cash total above $100,000. If this happens, Bob Gelfond's earlier challenge will also be met and he will donate a further $5,000 to the cause. Only a little more money is needed to make all of this happen before the end of the year - I have pitched in and I hope that you can too. We're getting close, but still need a few more small donations to close the gap! This is a wonderful opportunity to make a few dollars go a long way towards building an effective initiative for serious healthy life extension research.
