SENS Research Foundation (SRF) and Forever Healthy Foundation (FHF) want to see you at the second annual Undoing Aging conference! Early Bird registration pricing ends in less than two weeks, on January 24, 2019 - so make sure buy your tickets now to save €200.00. Undoing Aging 2019 (UA2019) will take place in Berlin at the Umspannwerk Alexanderplatz from March 28 to 30, 2019. 

The annual Undoing Aging conference is focused on the cellular and molecular repair of age-related damage as the basis of therapies to bring aging under full medical control. UA2019 will again focus on bringing together scientists and startups from around the globe in their respective fields, who are leading the charge in maintaining and restoring full health in old age. Speakers include leading researchers from around the world focused on topics including stem cells, senescent cells, immunotherapies, biomarkers and drug discovery.

Thank you very much to everyone who contributed to 2018's Reimagine Aging end-of-year fundraising campaign. The original General Fund goal of $500,000 was our most ambitious yet, and you enabled us to exceed this goal for an incredible $771,393 total! We are grateful beyond measure for your generosity and support to continue our mission of curing age-related disease. Every dollar you give helps bring the future we all want to build into existence. 

A very special thanks to Vitalik Buterin for his incredible gift of $350,000 in Ethereum, as well to IAS, Josh Triplett, Reason, Christophe Cornuejols, Didier Coeurnelle, and Olivier Roland for providing matching grants during this campaign.

SRF Education: 2019 Program Application Deadlines Approaching

The SRF Summer Scholars Program offers undergraduate students the opportunity to conduct biomedical research to combat diseases of aging, such as cancer, Alzheimer's, and Parkinson's Disease. Under the guidance of a scientific mentor, each Summer Scholar is responsible for his or her own research project in such areas as genetic engineering and stem cell research. 

Applications for the 2019 Summer Scholars program will be accepted until noon PST Monday, February 4, 2019 (12pm PST 2/4/19). 

The SRF Postbaccalaureate Fellowship Program offers recent graduates the opportunity to conduct biomedical research to combat diseases of aging, such as cancer, atherosclerosis, and Parkinson’s Disease. Like SRF’s Summer Scholars Program, the goal of the Postbaccalaureate Fellowship Program will be to prepare participants for a career in regenerative medicine research. Under the guidance of a scientific mentor, each Fellow will take control of his or her own research project. Training will also include writing assignments that will improve each Fellow’s ability to generate grant proposals, abstracts, and other scientific reports.

Applications for the 2019 SRF Postbaccalaureate Fellowship Program will be accepted until noon PST Monday, March 4, 2019 (12 PM PST 3/4/19).
