Who should apply?
To be a good fit for the Longevity Biotech Fellowship, you are probably:
- 100% committed to working in longevity
- Interested in starting, joining, or investing in longevity biotech startups, FROs, or similar.
- Have an operating or technical background
- Eager to be an active participant and contributor in a growing longevity-focused community
- Unflinchingly mission-driven.
What's the application process like?
To apply for the onboarding cohort fellowship program (newcomers) or to join the community (longevity professionals):
1. Submit an online application (~ 5 mins).
2. We will review your application. If a good fit, we will contact you to set up a ~20 min Zoom interview to get to understand your goals better and answer any questions you might have.
3. After the interview, successful candidates will be contacted by email to confirm registration and payment.
Is this an online or in-person program?
We onboard each cohort with an optional in-person 3-day retreat where members interact with mentors in intimate workshops on topics in aging biology and the longevity biotech industry.
After the retreat, we continue with a 12-week online program, with live talks and Q&As, networking, mastermind groups, IRL meetups, and more.
Is the in-person retreat mandatory?
While the retreat/camp experience is highly recommended, we understand not everyone can travel to the locations.
Do I need a biology background to apply?
While having formal biology training is an advantage for working in longevity biotech, it is not necessary. Many great founders and operators in our industry come from diverse experience and backgrounds.
We do recommend those who have zero knowledge of biology consider taking a free introductory biology course like MIT's 7.00X.
How much does it cost?
New membership for the Longevity Biotech Fellowship is $899, which includes:
