Rejuvenation Biotechnology Conference 2016

World populations are aging, and the social and economic burdens of age-related disease are rising steeply.  For an increasing number of elderly individuals, healthcare is too often reduced to crisis management in the emergency room, painfully harsh treatments for diseases such as cancer, or best efforts at palliative care.

SENS Research Foundation exists to end aging. Since 2009 we have worked to make the concept of rejuvenation biotechnology – the repairing of the damage which occurs to our bodies as we age – into a reality.

Our research, education and awareness programs have created the foundations of the Rejuvenation Biotechnology Industry, an industry that will be capable of targeting the diseases of aging with genuine, effective, affordable cures.

The 2016 Rejuvenation Biotechnology Conference was focused on taking the Rejuvenation Biotechnology Industry to the next level by addressing the question: what will it take to push emerging breakthroughs in regenerative medicine from proof-of-concept to implementation?

This year's conference sought to answer this critical inquiry by covering all the stages from securing funding, to production, to navigating regulation, to clinical evaluation and adoption of new treatments. Industry leading experts presented real-life examples drawn from their own work followed by open panel discussions and Q&A. As with our previous conferences, we provided ample time for networking with industry leaders, funders and researchers.

Due to our limited space the 2016 Rejuvenation Biotechnology Conference was an invitation only event. In order for our entire community to be able to participate we published a live stream of the conference, and a full recording of that stream is now available.
