Steve Perry

GDF11 Rejuvenation, Inc, Founder and entrepreneur

Bio

Growth Differentiation Factor 11 (GDF11) is a naturally occurring peptide that has been cited in several papers as having an amazing capacity to restore aging muscles, hearts and brains in mice. It has never been tested in humans until Steve Perry became patient zero on June 7, 2014.

Steve’s path to GDF11 research started at the University of Pennsylvania with a degree in computer science in 1980. Since then, Steve has founded and sold several software/tech companies including Revelation Technologies (a database company) in 1992, PowerPay Software (a payroll company) in 1998 and CorporateRewards (a web based sales incentive company) in 2012.

After 40 years of tech/software development, Steve believes that all complex systems are highly programmed - if not, they fall to chaos quickly. The ultimate complex system, the human body, is highly programmed and aging is no exception. Steve believes that lifespan is programmed by group selection based on resource and environmental selection pressures.

Parabiosis strongly suggests that blood borne peptides, especially GDF11, are a key component of the “aging program”. Steve founded GDF11 Rejuvenation, Inc in June, 2014 to explore the efficacy of GDF11 supplementation.

Presentation Summary

Growth Differentiation Factor 11 (GDF11) is a naturally occurring peptide that has been cited in several papers as having an amazing capacity to restore aging muscles, hearts and brains in mice. It has never been tested in humans until Steve Perry became patient zero on June 7, 2014. Parabiosis strongly suggests that blood borne peptides, especially GDF11, are a key component of the “aging program”.

Steve founded GDF11 Rejuvenation, Inc in June, 2014 to explore the efficacy of GDF11 supplementation. Steve and about 20 volunteers are working on a GDF11 dosing strategy as well as measuring key biomarkers in the cardiac, pulmonary, cognitive, skin elasticity and immune areas to determine GDF11’s effectiveness. Results of this study will be presented at Raadfest 2016.
