Today, Larry Page announced that Apple and Genentech chair Art Levinson will lead Calico, a Google initiative focused on challenges of age-related disease. TIME asked SRF CSO Aubrey de Grey for his take, posted in conjunction with the breaking news.
Summary of the SENS6: Reimaging Aging Conference
As a research-based outreach organization, SENS Research Foundation couples its strong scientific programs with an important focus on spreading the word about its cause. That focus is the reason that we’re so excited to announce our new Reimagine Aging celebrity campaign.
Mountain View, CA - The world’s leading series of conferences dedicated to the prevention and treatment of the diseases of aging using regenerative medicine will hold its next installment later this year. The conference, entitled “SENS6: Reimagine Aging,” will be held from September 3-7, 2013 at Queens’ College, Cambridge, UK. As part of the biennial SENS conference series, SENS6 will be presented by SENS Research Foundation (SRF), a biomedical research charity.
While antibiotics have long provided broad-spectrum treatments for bacterial infections, antiviral drugs have failed to offer protection that is nearly as wide. Dr. Todd Rider, who will be speaking at SENS6, is working to change that.
Many diseases mirror some aspect of aging. Multiple sclerosis (MS), which is caused by the loss of the myelin coating that protects nerve cells in the brain and spinal cord, is one example: myelin is also lost and poorly replaced in normal aging. Scientists like Cambridge’s Dr. Robin Franklin, a SENS6 speaker, are working hard to repair this damage.
Introduction to Dr. Alan Russell and his work crossing the boundaries of chemical engineering, biology, and materials science.
The SENS6 conference’s keynote address will be delivered by Dr. George Church, a researcher widely considered a luminary in modern biotechnology with over 300 publications to date.
While SENS6 will feature presentations by many esteemed and experienced researchers, Dr. Felipe Sierra stands out for his unifying vision and deep involvement in aging research.
