Rejuvenation Biotechnology Conference - 2015

August 19–21, 2015 · Hyatt Regency San Francisco Airport in Burlingame CA
www.sens.org/rb2015

To Foresight friends,

We're pleased to announce that the SENS Research Foundation is once again hosting its Rejuvenation Biotechnology Conference here in Silicon Valley. The Rejuvenation Biotechnology Conference is designed to bring together a global community to transform the treatment of age-related disease, and they would like all of us to be there.

Last year’s conference was truly one of the most informative and engaging longevity research events ever held.

The Rejuvenation Biotechnology Conference provides ways to:

  • Increase your knowledge about the key components of the new Rejuvenation Biotechnology Industry – the science, the regulatory issues, the financial and economic challenges
  • Discover new opportunities in research in Gene Therapy, Stem Cells, and Tissue Engineering
  • Learn the latest advances in Cancer, Alzheimer’s Disease, and Cardiovascular Research
  • Develop new collaborations with industry-leading researchers

This is a ground-breaking meeting featuring over 50 amazing speakers including Judith Campisi (Buck Institute for Aging Research), Russ Altman (Stanford Medical School), Anthony Atala (Wake Forest Institute for Regenerative Medicine), Mahendra Rao (New York Stem Cell Foundation), Jeanne Loring (Scripps Research Institute), Chas Bountra (University of Oxford) plus speakers from leading Biotech Companies Sanofi, Kite Pharma, BlueBird Bio, Sangamo BioScience, and Capricor Therapeutics.

To round out the event, there's a keynote by Frances Colon, Deputy Science and Technology Adviser to the Secretary of State, and even-returning again this year—comedian Hal Sparks.

We wouldn't miss it, so please join us August 19 – 21 at the Hyatt Regency San Francisco Airport in Burlingame CA. Register before July 15 to take advantage of early bird pricing at www.sens.org/rb2015.

Hope to see you there!

Rejuvenation Biotechnology Conference - 2014

August 21-23, 2014 · Santa Clara, California
Conference brochure (pdf)
Registration details

We are in the midst of a transformation in the way we search for cures to the diseases of aging. The prevalence of age-related diseases is spiraling and the socioeconomic impacts are a constant source of debate. Subsequently, interest in preventing such diseases through novel approaches to drug development is at an all-time high.

The Rejuvenation Biotechnology Conference is the latest SENS Research Foundation Conference and will be held on August 21-23 at the Hyatt Regency in Santa Clara, California. Join the growing rejuvenation biotechnology industry and hear the latest scientific and policy developments from leading experts in research, industry, policy, finance and regulatory fields.

25% discount for the longevity research conference from SENS Foundation this Aug. 21-23 in Santa Clara, CA. Early rate Extended Until July 14th.

To Foresight members and friends,

Ever since the longevity research conference series called SENS — Strategies for Engineering Negligible Senescence, chaired by Aubrey de Grey — began in 2003, I've longed to attend, but never could, because it's held at Cambridge University in the UK, putting the cost out of reach.

Now, finally, SENS Foundation has started a conference in the U.S., with the first one this August 21-23 here in Silicon Valley!

To get your costs down further, do two things:

  • Register by July 14 to get the early rate.
  • Use the discount code FORESIGHT25 to get an additional 25% off.

This is a ground-breaking meeting featuring true "rock stars" of longevity research, including George Church, Judith Campisi, Michael West, and 37 others.

To round out the event, there's a keynote by Ajay Royan of Mithril Capital Management, and even appearances by leaders from the entertainment world: comedian Hal Sparks, actor Edward James Olmos, and Cecilia Noel, the "Latin Tina Turner."

This promises to be the most informative and engaging longevity research event ever held.  I wouldn't miss it, so please join Foresight president Paul Melnyk, Gayle Pergamit, Tanya Jones, myself, and other friends this August in Santa Clara.

Hope to see you there!

—Christine

10th FNANO Conference on Self-Assembled Architectures and Devices

Monday, April 15 – Thursday, April 18, 2013 Snowbird, UT
The 10th FNANO Conference on Self-Assembled Architectures and Devices
NOTE: The early registration deadline is 15 March 2013.

The FNANO conference is an annual conclave on foundations of nano science. It maintains the highest scientific standards and provides a rich variety of opportunities for discussion and exchange of information on nanoscale sciences research.

Self-assembly is the central theme of the conference. Topics to be covered by speakers at the conference include experimental and theoretical studies of self-assembled architectures and devices at scales ranging from nano-scale to meso-scale. The subject matter of the conference spans many traditional disciplines including chemistry, biochemistry, physics, computer science, mathematics, and various engineering disciplines.

Organized by John H. Reif (Duke) and Marya Lieberman (Notre Dame) FNANO is among the most interesting and productive conferences on nanotechnology by the academic research community.

If you are interested in nanotechnology and want to spend a week immersed in presentations and discussions of many of the most important advances of the past year in nanosciences, surrounded by the snow covered peaks of one the most beautiful (and challenging) ski resorts in the US - then you ought to attend this conference.
