New CREA Events
Berkeley Explorations in Aging Research Symposium (BEARS) - UC Berkeley, October 12th, 2019
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.

STUDENT RESEARCH SHOWCASE
UC Berkeley MCB undergraduate Rita Barakat under the mentorship of George Brooks and Steve Garan wins the 2015 URAP Award. Competition for this award was intense, but the selection committee thought that Rita should have this great opportunity to deepen her research skills and contribute to ongoing research at CREA, and she will also receive a grant of $3,000.00.
