The second Ending Age-Related Diseases conference, hosted by the Life Extension Advocacy Foundation (LEAF) staff and volunteers, will be held in New York this coming July. It will bring together entrepreneurs, investors, and researchers to discuss progress towards bringing aging under medical control, and thus creating true cures for age-related conditions. I attended last year's inaugural conference in the series, and recommend it. LEAF puts on a good conference, so consider registering.
After the incredible success of the conference Ending Age-Related Diseases 2018, the Life Extension Advocacy Foundation is happy to announce its second annual conference, Ending Age-Related Diseases 2019, which is to be held at Cooper Union in New York City on July 11-12th, 2019. The conference is aimed at focusing the NYC business community's attention on the current state of aging and rejuvenation research that has the potential to prevent and cure age-related diseases. With multiple research projects targeting the underlying processes of aging in order to develop preventive medicines, promoting collaboration between academia, the rejuvenation industry, and investors becomes an increasingly important task.
The list of confirmed speakers already includes renowned researchers and visionaries, such as Dr. Aubrey de Grey (SENS Research Foundation), Michael Greve (KIZOO Technology Ventures, Forever Healthy Foundation), Dr. Vadim Gladyshev (Harvard Medical School), Dr. Vera Gorbunova (University of Rochester), Dr. Alex Zhavoronkov (Insilico Medicine), and Reason and Bill Cherman (Repair Biotechnologies), with more speakers from rejuvenation biotechnology companies and the investment sector to be confirmed soon.
"This year's conference will focus on two main topics. The first topic will be progress in aging research, from fundamental studies to the interventions that are being tested in human clinical trials and the development of reliable biomarkers of aging. The second topic will be devoted to the hurdles of implementing these emerging rejuvenation biotechnologies into clinical practice, with a special focus on investment, the regulatory landscape, and the preparedness of the medical community. This way, we hope not only to attract the attention of investors to these very promising medical innovations but also to promote public dialogue on how to ensure their availability and accessibility to our aging society."
