The Linus Pauling Institute's mission is to

Promote optimal health through cutting-edge nutrition research and trusted public outreach. To accomplish this we will:

  • Discover basic mechanisms underlying the biology of aging and the causes of metabolic and age-related diseases
  • Develop effective strategies to extend healthspan by compressing morbidity and reducing mortality from metabolic and age-related diseases through diet, micronutrients, and phytochemicals
  • Promote the principles of healthy living and healthy aging in the public arena, thereby empowering people everywhere to add years of health and vitality to their lives

Advancing healthspan, not just lifespan, is our passion!
