Greetings from Dr. Waters and the Murphy Foundation!
We are pleased to launch our first online newsletter.  We hope you enjoy!



Great success!  The Old Grey Muzzle Tour 2014 — a 58 day cross-country scientific expedition by Dr. Waters — gave further testimony to the unique scientific approach we are using.  It hinges on the idea that pet dogs with extreme longevity — equivalent to humans who live to be 100 years old — offer a valuable scientific opportunity to uncover important clues to understanding what it takes for pets and people to age more successfully and avoid cancer.  Embracing the goal of combining top-notch discovering with top-notch educating, the 2014 Tour enabled Dr. Waters to study carefully 16 more of the oldest-living dogs in their homes and to make educational stops — evenings of Celebration — in 11 cities across America hosted by people who have been inspired to follow and support our work.  To learn more about the Center for Exceptional Longevity Studies, visit our website


A Year in The Rear View Mirror:
The Discovering and Educating Continues


After completion of the 2014 Muzzle Tour, our momentum continued.  We shared our most recent scientific discoveries as well as our perspectives on preparing future discoverers — from addressing more than 1000 students at the National Cancer Institute of Columbia in South America, to a keynote talk to researchers and nutritionists at the prestigious AICR Conference on Nutrition and Cancer Prevention, to publishing a new conceptual framework introducing new language that will drive forward our thinking about longevity research.  In 2014, we kept leaving a trail of excellence.  And in upcoming issues of the Murphy Foundation e-Newsletter, we will be sharing these stories of discovery with you! 


Dr. Waters is a Featured Speaker

Will you be there?  People around the globe are recognizing that the research we are doing on the oldest-living Rottweilers holds great promise for deepening
