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.
The SENS6 conference will feature talks by many researchers who are leaders in their fields. One such speaker is the McGowan Institute for Regenerative Medicine’s Dr. Eric Lagasse.
The genomic revolution stands poised to transform cancer therapy and many areas of medicine. SENS Research Foundation-funded researchers outline what needs to be done to take raw results and integrate them into reliable clinical practice.
We've all heard the terminology. "Age-related disease." "The diseases of aging." "The diseases of old age." But what do we mean by them? What is the connection between aging and heart disease, or cancer, or Alzheimer's? And how is SENS Research Foundation targeting that connection to prevent and cure these diseases?
Rescue Assist, Inc., a company developing a robotic product that readily maneuvers through debris and will help rescue workers find disaster survivors, has pledged 7% of its profits to SENS Research Foundation.
Dr. Aubrey de Grey, Chief Science Officer of SENS Research Foundation, has been interviewed by Daniel Levine of The Burrill Report.
Dr. Aubrey de Grey, SENS Research Foundation’s Chief Science Officer, debated Dr. Richard Faragher, Chair of the British Society for Research on Ageing and Professor of Biological Gerontology at the University of Brighton, at Oxford’s Sheldonian Theatre on February 19. SENS Research Foundation is proud to have been a sponsor of this event, and would like to thank the Oxford University Society of Biomedical Sciences (OUSBMS) for hosting it.
Mike Kope's message welcoming visitors to our newly-revised site, relaunched in early 2013. It all centers around a new tagline: reimagine aging. Of course we are still "advancing rejuvenation biotechnologies" just as vigorously as when we carried that tagline over the last couple years.
