Discussing Aging At UCLA

Posted by:

The Methuselah Foundation and TED speaker Aubrey de Grey (watch his TEDGLOBAL 2005 speech) will host next week in Los Angeles “Aging: The Disease, The Cure, The Implications”, a symposium featuring world-renowned scientists and advocates of stem cell and regenerative medicine research.

The symposium will highlight the scientific prospects for using regenerative medicine to eliminate age-related disease, disability, suffering and death, as well as discuss public policy and legislation as it pertains to relevant scientific research (California plays a leading role in this, notably after the passing of Prop 71 that allocated $3 billion to fund stem cell research).

The symposium will be held on Friday 27 June at UCLA (Detailed info here). Attendance is free, but advance registration is required.
