What if we treated aging as a disease that could be prevented? That is the philosophy behind the SENS Research Foundation, a non-profit organization dedicated to driving scientific investigation into the underlying causes of the collection of symptoms that we call aging.
The SENS Research Foundation asked Microverse Studios to produce a series of animations that would demonstrate their research goals to an audience of potential donors that varied widely in their scientific backgrounds. Microverse’s experienced staff took to the challenge and crafted the entire series to be conceptually accessible to the lay audience while retaining the complexity and accuracy needed to capture the attention of research-level viewers.
One part of the series can be seen above (voiced by the legendary Edward James Olmos [http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0001579/]), but visit The SENS website [http://www.sens.org/videos/introductory-scientific-animations] to view the rest and learn more about this fascinating line of research.
