"Control ALT, Delete Cancer" Campaign Extended through September 17, 2016 with $15k Matching Challenge

SENS Research Foundation is pleased to announce the extension of the "Control ALT, Delete Cancer" campaign supporting our OncoSENS program through September 17, 2016.

We would like to extend our tremendous gratitude toward two very generous individuals -- Christophe Cornuejols and an anonymous donor -- who have pledged a $15,000 Matching Challenge for the remainder of this campaign.

Please visit the lifespan.io page for details on the campaign and help make sure we are able to meet this new $15k matching goal! Thank you to the 400+ donors who have pledged their support already; now let's make sure we get the rest of the way there. The campaign may have some extra time, but every minute counts in the journey toward a universal cancer cure.

Toward a Universal Cancer Therapy - Interview with SRF's Haroldo Silva

The Siebel Scholars program was established by the Thomas and Stacey Siebel Foundation in 2000 to recognize the most talented students at the world’s leading graduate schools of business, computer science, bioengineering, and energy science.

SRF's Dr. Haroldo Silva, lead researcher for the OncoSENS program, was recently interviewed on the Siebel Scholars site. Very much worth a read if you're curious to learn more about the work, motivations, and goals of an SRF scientist, and if you are interested in a good overview of the Control ALT, Delete Cancer project goals.

2016 Rejuvenation Biotechnology Conference a Success 

The 2016 Rejuvenation Biotechnology Conference was a tremendous success this year. We had a sell-out crowd of over 250 registered attendees, and  over 1100 people signed up to stream the conference in 63 countries; we also had a truly impressive group of expert speakers covering everything from cutting-edge regenerative medicine work to analysis of current regulatory and development climates.
