The genesis of the Supercentenarian Research Foundation (SRF) began with a meeting at 6:30 AM on Sunday, October 31, 2004, during the Integrative Medical Therapeutics for Anti-Aging Conference in Las Vegas. 18 people assembled to discuss supercentenarians during this meeting that was organized by Stephen Coles and Elliot Bergman. Subsequent meetings were held in Miami, in Oakland during the AGE Conference in 2005, and during the SENS Conference at the University of Cambridge in 2005. Members of the Scientific Advisory Board were recruited at these conferences that included some of the leading gerontologists in the world. The Organizing Committee (see below) facilitated the development of the SRF throughout this period. On May 2, 2006, the SRF was registered as a non-profit corporation in Pennsylvania. A letter from the Internal Revenue Service sent on Jan. 10, 2008, recognized the SRF as a 501(c)(3) organization eligible to receive tax deductible donations. This status is retroactive from May 2, 2006. The SRF Public Charity Status is 170(b)(1)(A)(vi) for our EIN: 20-5167366. The SRF DLN: 17053165001047. The first annual meeting of the SRF was held on June 4, 2006, in Boston during the AGE Conference.
