Strategies for Engineered Negligible Senescence, Fifth Conference

The fifth SENS conference (SENS5) took place at Queens' College, Cambridge University, UK from 31 August-4 September 2011.

The proceedings of the conference were published in a special volume (15(2)) of Rejuvenation Research, the only international peer-reviewed academic journal focused on the development of therapies to repair age-related damage.

Speakers included renowned gerontologist Caleb Finch, originator of the term "negligible senescence"; Sierra Sciences LLC founder and telomere biologist Bill Andrews; and Karolinska Institute surgeon Paolo Macchiarini, who conducted the world's first transplant of a decellularised organ repopulated with a patient's own stem cells.
