SENS Research Foundation's Ending Aging Forum, September 2022

The SENS Research Foundation is hosting an online presentation of their work next month, a virtual Ending Aging Forum. If you are interested in the projects presently underway at the Foundation, and in allied labs, then mark your calendars. While the SENS view of aging as a process of damage accumulation, accompanied by a set of specific approaches to be taken to produce rejuvenation, has diffused somewhat into the broader longevity industry, that industry remains largely working on metabolic manipulation to slightly slow aging, not actual repair of damage. There is still a role for organizations focused on the SENS approach to aging and rejuvenation, accelerating the path towards meaningful rejuvenation therapies.

Come spend a wonderful and thought provoking time with the team at SENS Research Foundation. This virtual event is your opportunity to hear first-hand about the latest advances that our in-house researchers are making toward new rejuvenation biotechnologies, along with some of our young scientists-in-training and outside researchers whose research we fund. In addition to the formal presentations, you'll have the opportunity to talk one-on-one with the scientists and other members of our team, as well as with citizens, donors, and activists who dream of and work for a future free of degenerative aging.

The virtual event will have a Conference Hall, where feature presentations are made, along with project-specific Research Booths and booths for scientific posters presented by our students that break down different research projects. In the Expo Room, attendees can also meet and talk one-on-one or in small groups with the team and other supporters, or watch videos in which our team members and scientists-in-training introduce themselves and what drew them to this Mission. Join us to learn and celebrate how far we've come, and to catch a glimpse of the future we're building!



I lost any interest in them when they became another woke gestapo.

was just reading their proposal to create some CAR T-cells for destroying senescent cells:

if I understand correctly, this is using our immune system to destroy senescent cells, instead of just using a chemical (like Q & D). Seems like this approach could be hard to control? Not sure, but they seem excited by it.

Also, they raised 250k... via the VITA crypto coin.... so this is basically crowdfunded? Pretty cool

@Antonio. I was unhappy how they handled that situation as well, but one must keep an eye on what's important. There are not that many nonprofits involved in SENS-like rejuvenation research and countless lives hang in the balance.
