Thank you to everyone that came to our Existential Hope Day at the Institute in San Francisco! We had such a blast collaborating with each of you. Talks from yesterday will be uploaded to our Youtube channel in the coming days. Stay Tuned!
Have you applied for the Longevity Frontiers Workshop, April 17th and 18th, 2023, at The Institute in San Francisco, CA yet??! Spots are limited.
If you’ve been given the greenlight to attend please be sure to secure your ticket today, or let us know if we can give your spot to someone else.
This two-day event invites leading researchers, entrepreneurs, and funders to drive progress in this underexplored field. Expect to uncover new opportunities, form lasting collaborations, and join us in driving cooperation toward shared long-term goals.
If you or your organization would like to help sponsor this workshop, it would mean a great deal to our community. Foresight Institute is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, so your donation is tax-deductible in the US as permitted by law. Please get in touch with [email protected]
With the Feynman Prizes, Foresight Institute wishes to recognize recent and brilliant achievements that contribute deeply to the field of Nanotechnology.
Nominations are now open for this year’s award. Please nominate yourself or someone you think should be awarded here.
The Feynman Prizes are named in honor of the physicist Richard Feynman. In 1959, Feynman gave a talk titled ‘There’s Plenty Of Room At The Bottom’, which is considered by many industry advocates to have inspired the field of nanotechnology itself.
The Foresight Fellowship is a one-year program committed to giving change-makers the support to accelerate their bold ideas into the future. Here’s what our fellows have been up to.
Nikolina Lauc – GlycanAge.
After analyzing 10,000 twins and getting four similar estimates, her group published a study on the heritability of the glycan clock of biological age: complex interplay between genetic and environmental factors dictates the glycan clock’s ticking. Check it out here.
Dr. Damien Sluysmans – University of Liège.
Very proud of Damien and his collaborators for recently being published in Chem, 9, 65-75 (2023) titled Mechanical Tightening of a Synthetic Molecular Knot, an AFM study on a synthetic molecular knot! This study is in collaboration with F. Zerbetto, Liang Zhang, and David Leigh.
Jamie Joyce – Internet Archive.
Jamie is developing a nation-wide strategic plan to collect municipal, state, and federal documents, data, research, reports, and records in the US to build a centralized, machine-readable repository of critical government collections called “Democracy’s Library.” The collection will be held by both the Internet Archive and Filecoin Network.
Longevity SF presents Longevity, Informatics, & Robots Workshop: Come spend an evening learning about the intersection of longevity, bioinformatics, and hard tech at Circuit Launch at this in-person workshop on Thursday, March 2nd. This collaborative event between Longevity SF, Bay Area Bioinformatics (BayBIFX), and Circuit Launch features talks and a tour of the robots native to the space. Dinner and drinks are provided.
This Thursday, March 16th, Thoughtful Biometrics Workshop will virtually convene for uncommon conversations that deepen understanding between various stakeholders all engaged in work related to biometrics.
