2 – NovaXS | USA
NovaXS is a smart medical device company developing a needle-free injection device that syncs with a smartphone app to make the treatment process easier and pain-free for those suffering from chronic conditions and diseases.
One in four adults and two in three children have a fear of needles, only 50% of medications for chronic disease are taken as prescribed and the error rate for administering medications at home is up to 33%.
This all adds up to higher healthcare costs and results in negative health outcomes for patients that suffer from common illnesses like diabetes, growth hormone deficiencies, allergies and more.
NovaXS Biotech is on a mission to make medication self-administration as easy as making morning coffee.
The prominent medical device startup is focused on advanced drug delivery and users’ long-term health. Its patent-pending technology is a needle-free drug delivery platform. It allows patients to self-administer biologics subcutaneously or intramuscularly and track long-term treatment progress through IoT integration and software app.

3 – Oxford Longevity Project | Oxford, UK
The Oxford Longevity Project aims to make the latest scientific breakthroughs in longevity accessible to the general public. It is a team of scientists and doctors uniting to change how we understand healthcare for good.
Together, they’ve capitalised on the public’s increased comfort with virtual learning and conferences by holding quarterly global webinars via main online platforms.
What makes OLP unique is their commitment to connect influential clinical practitioners and leading scientists on the same topic.
The speakers have two aims: First and foremost to translate the latest science into accessible information that patients and other interested non-scientists can action themselves; and, second, to more quickly connect doctors to the latest protocols.
Many researchers believe that it takes up to 17 years to translate breakthrough bench research into protocols used in clinics and OLP hope to change this by forging these connections.
One of the scientific discoveries that inhibits ageing are autophagy or cellular renewal, recycling and repair and this led to their previous webcasts ‘Autophagy and Alzheimers’ and ‘Autophagy and Ageing.’ to discuss this topic.
They’re committed to offering free information and empowering people to pursue health and living longer on their own terms, with accessible language, live seminars and free catch-up videos-all at no cost.
