UC BERKELEY IS BRINGING AGING RESEARCH AND REJUVENATION TECHNOLOGY TO SILICON VALLEY AND INVESTORS

At Stanley Hall, on the campus of the University of California, Berkeley, we will be hosting a special conference focused on aging research and biotechnology and investment. Developing therapies from initial concepts, through clinical testing, and ultimately to market takes a pipeline, and right now, that pipeline is being built to support the next step in medicine: rejuvenation biotechnology. Join us for this exciting event, where academic and industry experts will be sharing their insights on the advances and investment prospects in an industry poised to revolutionize medicine forever.

EXIBITS, POSTERS, PANELS, SPEAKERS, NETWORKING and AWARDS

The conference will feature speakers and panelists from the leading universities and biotechnology companies in the San Francisco Bay area. The conference will have a poster session and exhibits from scientists and companys that are engaged in aging research. There will be ample time to network with the leaders in the field of aging research from both the academic and commercial worlds. The Paula S. Timiras award will be given to a research scientist that has played a major role in changing our understanding of aging and how the process can be slowed down.

EXPERTS FROM ACADEMIA, INDUSTRY AND INVESTMENT

We bring you insights from the leading experts from academia, industry and investment, who will guide you through the field of aging research and rejuvenation biotechnology in a series of talks and presentations. Below are the confirmed guests, and we will be announcing more speakers soon, so be sure to check back with us often to see who else will be joining us.

PAULA S. TIMIRAS AWARD

The Paola S. Timiras award for aging research was established to honor those that have made an important contribution to better understanding the aging process. The award also honors those that increase the awareness and importance of aging research. Dr. Timiras was both a researcher and an advocate for aging research, she published hundreds of research articles related to the aging process and she also was a tireless advocate that educated the public on the importance of the benefits of this research in increasing our "healthspan". CREA will award Dr. Cynthia J. Kenyon the award for her outstanding research in the field of aging.

EVENT PROGRAM
