Advisory Board

Elena Milova

Elena Milova is Board Member of the Life Extension Advocacy Foundation (LEAF).
 
Elena has been a longevity activist and advocate since 2013, when she first started to organize educational events to make new evidence-based methods of healthy life extension more popular.
 
The last few years have seen Elena leading some successful projects in Russia, aimed at spreading the idea of healthy longevity among decision makers as well as the general public. Several years of lobbying resulted in the inclusion of her propositions in the strategic program documents of the Russian Federation related to the problems of the elderly. She is coauthor of the book Aging Prevention for All (in Russian, 2015), where, among other topics, she shares how to facilitate the adoption of a healthy lifestyle to prolong the period of good health.
 
Elena is an Honorary Member of the International Longevity Alliance, supporting the various advocacy projects of this group. In 2015, she helped to shape and coordinate the successful crowdfunding campaign of the Major Mouse Testing Program — a study of Senolytic drug combinations on mouse lifespan.
 
Previously Elena worked as a project manager in the pharmaceutical and advertisement industries, helping to promote new drugs and therapies. This experience helped her to realize that the existing therapies were not 100% effective and could not completely stop age-related diseases — which ignited an interest in the development of innovative therapies.
 
Elena graduated with a bachelor’s in both psychology and foreign languages and is now working to earn her PhD in sociology in relation to public attitudes towards life extension technologies.
