A venue for multi-disciplinary discussions that go beyond quantification of human biologic function to include ideas for how to optimize human performance across multiple domains including physical, mental, emotional and social.
The presentations will span the gamut from the socio-cultural aspects of human health to the technologies and nutritional interventions that can enhance cognition, athletic performance and sense of general wellbeing.
BioHackersNYC takes a broader view of biohacking compared to the original biopunk movement or DIYBio where experimentation with DNA and other aspects of molecular biology was/is a core element.
It is designed to bring together multiple perspectives that can help shift the current health paradigm from an illness focus to a wellness focus.
Anyone interested in the integration of sociology, biology, technology, wellness would find this of interest.
