The SENS6 conference was an amazing opportunity to engage in ongoing research in the field of biogerontology and regenerative medicine. I was really excited to attend a conference on such a scale and share the results of my 2013 summer research with Dr. Graca Almeida-Porada at the Wake Forest Institute for Regenerative Medicine with scientists from all over the world at the venerable University of Cambridge.
Attending the SENS6 conference was an awesome experience for me. Fascinating presentations about the latest advances in a wide range of regenerative medicine fields enthralled me from dawn till dusk. Each day was also punctuated by discussions about science and life experience, which usually continued deep into the night, and I can wholeheartedly say were no less informative than the scientific presentations themselves. I met a bunch of fellow students and researchers, who are also passionate about SRF’s mission. Finally, meeting well-known professors, whom I had previously only known through their publications, was a bit surreal to say the least.
On November 15th SENS Research Foundation announced its year-end giving campaign. To continue to increase our impact on advancing the field of regenerative medicine, we asked for help from our community. More funding will mean more researchers and more labs making cures for the diseases of aging a reality.

The most amazing thing to me about the SENS conferences is their perennial appeal to the non-scientist. It’s interesting to see how many people from unrelated backgrounds come to watch highly technical talks on biochemistry, molecular biology, and regenerative medicine. This is most likely owing to the incredible advances in research being presented at the conference.
