Our Donations
We provide grants to support human longevity, research, and education. Our mission is to provide people with the right tools, knowledge and processes to leverage technology, becoming more effective and efficient in the long run.

XPrize Foundation

In 2019, The Antonov Foundation contributed to the XPRIZE Age Reversal prize design. The prize, once launched, will be awarded to a team that can demonstrate significant accomplishments in reversing aging in humans. You can read about and participate in discussion related to prize development in the Age Reversal Xprize Community.

SENS Research Foundation

The Antonov Foundation has been an active supporter of the SENS Research Foundation, an organization working to eliminate age-related diseases and infirmity by comprehensively repairing the damage that builds up in our bodies over time. Our grants advance research dedicated to solving the problem of aging, specifically contributing to these areas:

  • Cell replacement reversal of neocortical aging.
  • Understanding of crosslinking processes in extracellular tissues and how these change with age.
  • Supporting MitoSens allotropic expression work through CRISPR/Cas9 gene editing.
  • Development of monoclonal antibodies against glucosepane.
  • SENS education Fellowship program.

Buck Institute for Research on Aging

The Antonov Foundation has contributed to the Buck Institute, a pioneer in the study of biology of aging, to help support the computational biology efforts at the AI Center for aging research.

Atrial Fibrillation Research

In 2020, The Antonov Foundation donated to the UCSF Center for Prevention of Heart and Vascular Disease to support their research on finding mechanisms through which aging "wear and tear" lead to atrial fibrillation (AFib) and sinus node dysfunction (SND). AFib and SND are the most commonly encountered heart rhythm syndromes related to structural and functional remodeling of the atria. As our population ages, they become the most common causes of stroke, heart failure, and pacemaker implants, making “atrial disease” a major public health challenge.

Virtual Science Center

In 2019, The Antonov Foundation donated to build The Virtual Science Center, a museum dedicated to virtual reality. This museum is currently located at the Lawrence Hall of Science at the University of California at Berkeley.

University of Maryland

In 2014, The Antonov Foundation announced a $4 million gift to the University of Maryland. This gift supported construction of the Brendan Iribe Center for Computer Science and Engineering, a new computer science building designed for cutting edge work in virtual reality, augmented reality, computer vision, robotics, and future computing platforms. The center includes the Antonov Auditorium with nearly 300 seats with shared tables and swivel chairs that enable students to alternate between lecture-based presentations and collaborative teamwork. $500,000 of that money was used to fund scholarships.

Alternative Teaching Strategy Center

The Antonov Foundation contributed to the Alternative Teaching Strategy Center, a non-profit organization dedicated to providing services to families with children and adults with autism and other cognitive and learning disabilities. The center works directly with parents, insurance companies, school districts and other State agencies to provide one-on-one services to children and adults from all over the world.
