"Social acceptance" is of course a very dubious concern if one considers his
primary task to be exactly that of changing what is "socially acceptable".

But I never liked much the term of "immortality", which suggests
a) an inability to die,
b) a somewhat metaphysically-tainted concept of infinity.

On the other hand, "Indefinite Lifespan Institute" may not sound so well in
English... :-/
