Ovarian aging is poorly understood, under-researched and under-invested. We need a radical rethink of how we address fertility and the menopause – it’s time to stop playing chicken with ovarian aging.

Today we unveil our new report on ovarian aging; our vision is a future with greater investment and research into science and technology to extend fertility and delay menopause, and it’s backed by a YouGov survey that reveals that 32% of women surveyed aged 18-44 would take an intervention to delay their menopause and extend their fertility.

Longevity.Technology: A third of women is just the tip of the iceberg; how many more women would take an active and positive role to direct their own fertility if a safe and easy intervention were available? Research in this area is underfunded and education side-lined, but the time has come to change that. Discoveries are being made all over the world that need to be taken on by those who can leverage the science and translate it into an actual product. Spotlighting the processes involved in ovarian aging, and how to target them, will be a massive breakthrough for female healthspan and lifespan.

It’s time to address the challenge of ovarian aging. Menopause drives health decline in many women, leading to poor health in their later years and ovarian aging is associated with a pressure for women to reproduce before they hit the average age of infertility. Our intelligence report will, we hope, galvanise the scientific and investment communities to do more to address this challenge.

Longevity.Technology Scientific Editor and author of the report, Daragh Campbell says: “The science and research into ovarian aging has grown massively in the past five years, but very few companies are actively engaged in developing interventions. Discoveries are being made all over the world that need to be taken on by investors and those who can translate the science into safe and effective products. Our report highlights therapies and solutions that are ready to be developed, and I am convinced that discovering the processes involved in ovarian aging, and how to target them, will be a massive breakthrough for female healthspan and lifespan.

Dr Jennifer Garrison, a scientist at the renowned Buck Institute for Research on Aging, is working on strategies to prevent or delay ovarian aging.

“We need more research to understand what drives ovaries to age prematurely,” said Dr Garrison. “Without this knowledge, any solutions we engineer will simply be bandaids.”​

In order to provide maximum access to our findings, Longevity.Technology has prepared an in-depth scientific look at ovarian aging and a more accessible version for people interesting in learning out more.

The time has come to ensure women can access the future they deserve – our report is the first step on that journey.
