Undoing Aging To Return in 2019

Announcement Solidifies the Undoing Aging Conference Series as an Annual Event

Due to the incredible success of the 2018 Undoing Aging Conference in Berlin, Germany, SENS Research Foundation (SRF) and Forever Healthy Foundation (FHF) are pleased to announce that Undoing Aging will return in 2019. This will be an annual conference series, co-sponsored by SRF and FHF to promote awareness of age-related disease and the ongoing scientific breakthroughs in rejuvenation biotechnology.

Undoing Aging 2019 will once again focus on bringing together scientists from around the globe who are leading the charge in their respective fields in combating age-related disease. It is through the collaborative efforts of these scientists, investors, policy makers, and the media that we will continue to expand the rejuvenation biotechnology industry and Reimagine Aging.

Many thanks to the brilliant speakers and the 350 participants in attendance from 36 countries world-wide, without whom this event could not have been such a resounding success. We look forward to an even greater event in 2019!

Request For Proposals Announced For Forever Healthy Foundation Fellowship in Rejuvenation Biotechnology

SRF and Forever Healthy Foundation to Collaborate on Fellowship in Rejuvenation Biotechnology

SENS Research Foundation (SRF) and Forever Healthy Foundation (FH) have announced a Forever Healthy Foundation Fellowship, sending out a Request for Proposals (RFP) for interested Post-Docs in the Rejuvenation Biotechnology space. The Fellowship will be carried out at the SRF Research Center in Mountain View, California. 

Applications are requested that promise progress over the course of the 3-year Fellowship in any area of Rejuvenation Biotechnology – defined as the application of the principles of regenerative medicine for the prevention and reversal of age-related disease. Degenerative aging is a consequence of the progressive accumulation of damage to tissue and cellular and molecular structures over time; specific diseases of aging emerge when the cumulative burden of such damage in a particular tissue exceeds the minimum required to sustain its core biological functions. 

“Rejuvenation biotechnology began as a concept that few researchers understood, so our extramural research was necessarily guided by our own assessment of other researchers’ suitability, rather than by researchers coming to us with proposals. This RFP is a demonstration that that is no longer so: rejuvenation biotech has now become an established biomedical research paradigm”, explains Dr. Aubrey de Grey, Chief Science Officer of SRF.

This Fellowship has been made possible through the generous support of the Forever Healthy Foundation, a private nonprofit initiative whose mission is to enable people to vastly extend their healthy lifespans and be part of the first generation to cure aging. In order to accelerate the development of therapies to bring aging under full medical control, the Forever Healthy Foundation directly supports cutting-edge research aimed at the molecular and cellular repair of damage caused by the aging process.
