Expanding the human healthspan empowers people everywhere to prevent and reduce the ravages of illness in their own lives.

Our Commitment

By studying the correlation between lifestyle and genetics, the Global HealthSpan project is leading the way in discovering the genetic and epigenetic predictors of health, wellness, aging, and lifestyle-related diseases. Armed with these insights, we empower people to take charge of their own health and live a more fruitful and fulfilled life. Our work is breaking new ground in the world of medicine. We are helping people avoid, reduce, or control the following health conditions, among countless others:

  • Addictions
  • Cognitive decline
  • Hearing loss
  • Kidney disease
  • Heart disease
  • Diabetes
  • Cancer
  • High cholesterol
  • Longevity
  • Stress
  • Depression
  • Sweet tooth 
  • Learning disability
  • Impulse control problems 
  • Tendency to extremes 
  • Motivation patterns
  • Sleep patterns
  • Ability to metabolize fats

The Global Healthspan Study is the work of the Global Healthspan Foundation, a collaboration between international leaders in genetics, epigenetics, and wellness, including Dr. Aimon Kopera, the International Research Institute for Wellness and Prevention (IRIWP), Genomics International, the Institute of HeartMath, QiMountain Longevity Institute, and Sage Healthcare.

Our Study

Expanding our human healthspan requires a collaboration of distinct sciences and specialties. It also requires a long-term approach to be able to observe meaningful changes over time. Our study does just that. The genetic data we are gathering is helping us understand many common disease enough to improve treatments and to prevent it.

Never before have we been able to gather information about so many critical factors at once — genetic, physical, psychosocial, and lifestyle — to gain extraordinary insights into the development of aging and disease.

With genetic information, we can understand a disease enough to both improve treatments and to prevent it in many people around the world.
