Over the years, Nu Skin has partnered with scientific institutions around the world to research and develop cutting-edge products and technologies. Recently, Nu Skin developed two key research partnerships with Stanford University and LifeGen Technologies. Researchers at Stanford have focused on profiling gene expression during human development and aging, and they have also explored novel modes of gene control in aging skin. In addition, Nu Skin is the only direct selling company to partner with LifeGen Technologies, a company backed by over 30 years of expertise in methods for extending life, whose founders have published more than 200 scientific papers. Our exclusive partnership with LifeGen Technologies gives Nu Skin access to more than 30 years of research into the genetic basis of aging. LifeGen's pioneering research combined with Nu Skin's ongoing research will allow us to use this knowledge to develop innovative, proprietary products far into the future.
