Based on the encouraging success of Biotech Investing in Longevity, we’re striving to build a continuous community around progress in longevity — starting with a curated evening satellite to the American Aging Association’s annual meeting on May 30.

We reserved a limited number of spots for applications via this link: http://bit.ly/longevitycoordination

The goal of the evening is to update each other on new longevity projects and find opportunities for collaboration. We’re thrilled to welcome Dr. Joon Yun to open up the discussion by sharing exciting progress on his efforts to coordinate the longevity space via Academies and Prizes.

Dr. Joon Yun is President and Managing Partner of Palo Alto Investors LP, a healthcare hedge fund founded in 1989. Joon is a member of the President’s Circle of the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine. Joon has published dozens of patents and scientific articles. Joon and his wife Kimberly launched the $1 million Palo Alto Longevity Prize in 2013 to reverse the aging process and recently donated $2 million to launch the National Academy of Medicine Aging and Longevity Grand Challenge.

Joon observes that “we are still losing 500,000 a week silently and forever to aging. Until there is progress, urgency makes sense.” Please join us to turn the road to progress into well-connected avenues of cooperation.

This event is brought to you by a partnership of Aikora Health, Foresight Institute, and IndieBio.
