Mprize Lifespan Achievement Award
The famed Friars Club in Manhattan was the setting for the presentation of the first annual Mprize Lifespan Achievement Award. Supporters, staff and researchers who work with Methuselah Foundation gathered for the award ceremony on October 8. The emcee for the evening was the noted medical journalist, Dr. Max Gomez. Presentations were made by Dave Gobel, Methuselah founder; Roger Holzberg, My Bridge 4 Life; Keith Murphy, Organovo and Kevin Perrott, Mprize.
The Mprize Lifespan Achievement Award was presented to Dr. Dave Z. Sharp, University of Texas San Antonio. Dave was the inspiration behind an extremely well documented study in three labs that concluded that the drug rapamycin (August newsletter
) extended the healthy life in mice. Huber Warner, Methuselah Foundation Scientific Advisory Board Member and founder of the Interventions Testing Program (ITP) that performed the research, presented the award. ITP is a program of the National Institute on Aging.
After the award was presented, the cork was popped on a Methuselah of champagne (6 liters or the equivalent of 8 bottles). Guests mingled and made plans for the formation of a New York Chapter of Methuselah Foundation.
“Learning about My Bridge 4 Life was truly an "aha" moment. Having an online wellness network that allows access to information, creation of one's own support team from all different areas of the globe, and building a wellness plan during a major health crisis is a brilliant concept. Roger Holzberg has developed this idea through his own experience with cancer, and the Methuselah Foundation is helping to share and expand his vision with everyone facing life-threatening challenges. ”
