Steve Hill


With a background in statistical data analysis, project management and administration he is ideally placed to oversee the project and help the various team members with the various tasks and goals the team has to complete. His main role as project lead is to organize research data, administration, project management solutions, advocacy and networking.

Working in research and in particular the field of regenerative medicine demands an ability to respond quickly and efficiently to changing situations. Whilst not from a research background per se his previous experience working as a manager in real time traffic control has given him the experience and ability to remain calm under pressure and help the team achieve its aims. His decades of experience in statistical data analysis, administration and planning gives him the ability to strategically plan and organize the various tasks the team must complete and help drive the project forward to meet deadlines and goals.

As an active longevity advocate he has a excellent knowledge of the regenerative medicine field that ranges from pharmaceutical sourcing, lab planning and costing to research and technology. Part of his role is contacting drug suppliers, animal breeders and other labs as part of the ongoing development of the project.

I represent Optimum Health a non government organization in Russia. My organization is supporting the development of the technologies to understand and potentially address the aging process and age-related diseases. I have been a longevity activist and advocate since 2013 when I started to hold educational events to make new evidence-based methods of healthy life extension more popular.

I am the co-author of the book “Aging prevention for all” which was recently issued in Russian and the book is being currently translated into several languages. You can download a copy of the Russian language version here if you would like to read more about evidence-based life extension methods.

I am an Honorary Member of the International Longevity Alliance (ILA), where I am responsible for the development of organizational processes and tools. I helped to develop the new ILA website and I am proud to be a part of the MMTP. My main role in the group is directing our IT team and I also help with networking and promotion activities.

Previously I worked in the pharmaceutical industry and the pharmaceutical advertisement sector, but I understood that it is more important to support fundamental science and medical innovations to get new therapies faster. My experience in the industry has given me valuable insights into how the MMTP can succeed and I use this knowledge to support the project.

I perceive aging as the number one problem, because it is the root of most major pathology like cancer, type 2 diabetes, stroke, heart disease, Alzheimer's, arthritis, visual impairment and others. I believe that if we address aging decline and develop treatments to slow it down, counteract to it and eventually reverse then we will remove many health problems at once.

Helping people to obtain more years of healthy life is a worthy goal isn’t it?
