Steve Hill

Editor in Chief and Director of the board at LEAF

Since late 2016 I have been a Director of the board at the Life extension advocacy foundation, a New York Based 501(c)(3) organization which fundraises for research, provides educational materials about biology, covers biotech news, and organizes conferences and events in support of biotechnology focused on ending the diseases of aging.

As part of my duties I am responsible for content creation and managing social media for our organization. To date I have written over 300 scientific articles covering a range of topics within aging research and scientific advocacy, and I manage a small team of writers producing regular content for our news website.
