Rejuvenation Biotechnology Conference 2014

Dates: August 21 – 23, 2014
Location: Santa Clara, California

SENS Research Foundation is proud to present the Rejuvenation Biotechnology Conference: Emerging Regenerative Medicine Solutions for the Diseases of Aging. This conference will bring together leaders from the Alzheimer’s, cardiovascular, cancer, and other age-related disease communities to discuss preventative and combinatorial strategies to address the diseases of old age.

The Rejuvenation Biotechnology Conference builds upon novel strategies being pioneered by the Alzheimer’s and cancer communities. By convening the foremost leaders from academia, industry, investment, policy, and disease advocacy, SRF seeks to inspire consideration of the wider potential of these strategies and evaluate the feasibility of preventative and combinatorial medicine applications to treat all aging-related diseases. Through a series of presentations and panel discussions, Alzheimer’s disease, cancer, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, macular degeneration, musculoskeletal disease and Parkinson’s disease will be examined with scientific, economic, regulatory and other considerations in mind.
