Rejuvenation Research is a bimonthly peer-reviewed scientific journal published by Mary Ann Liebert that covers research on rejuvenation and biogerontology. The journal was established in 1998 and the editor-in-chief is Aubrey de Grey. It is the official journal of the European Society of Preventive, Regenerative and Anti-Aging Medicine as well as PYRAMED: World Federation and World Institute of Preventive & Regenerative Medicine.

History[edit]

The journal was established in 1998 as the Journal of Anti-Aging Medicine with Michael Fossel (Michigan State University) as editor-in-chief. It obtained its current title in 2004.

Appreciations of the journal have been divergent. In 2008, the journal has been referred to as a "heroic effort to jump-start research on postponing or slowing human aging" (by editorial board member Michael R. Rose),[1] but also as being "somewhat fringy"[2] or "situated admittedly at the fringe of gerontology by taking the controversial stance that aging is ameliorable while demanding to be taken as serious science."[3]

SENS conferences[edit]

The journal publishes the abstracts of the annual conferences of the SENS Research Foundation.
