Video of SENS6 Conference Presentations

SENS, the Strategies for Engineered Negligible Senescence, provides an overview of the causes of aging and detailed research plans aimed at the production of repair therapies that can reverse those causes. This is all drawn from and built atop past decades of work in many life science fields relevant to medicine.

Every other year for the past decade a SENS conference has been held: a way to look at progress, make connections, and draw new scientists into the field. You'll find an array of presentation videos from last year's SENS6 conference on rejuvenation biotechnology at the SENS Research Foundation. If you have a few hours to spare then take some time to browse, as this is a very good way to gain an impression of the state of this comparatively young field of medical research as it stands today:

The SENS6: Reimage Aging Conference in September of 2013 marked the sixth conference held at historic Queens' College at the University of Cambridge. World-renowned scientists and other visionaries in the field of regenerative medicine presented the latest cutting-edge advances in regenerative medicine and biotechnology. Here you can view an overview of the conference as well as selected presentations and interviews. See why many remarked that it was the best SENS Conference to date.

Was that $100,000 raised at the the end of 2013 enough to ensure that annual conferences (rather than beinnial) conferences can be held?

I'm also thinking that someone should knock up a timeline of each of the 7 sens research areas with any recent advances/news on them (maybe with links to this blog's articles). Maybe like a horizontal infographic with mouseover pop up boxes. Perhaps with a list of all the groups around the world working on that area at the moment.

Two big questions that always pop up into my mind when reading about this are - what are the current unsolved obstacles in an area? And how close is research in this area to breaking through and beginning human trials?
