Making SENSe of Aging: Strategies for Engineered Negligible Senescence

Short notice, I know, but I thought some of you might be interested in this event being put on by the UBC Life Extension Club this Monday at 6pm.

Here's the event description from the Facebook invite:  http://www.facebook.com/events/300333780030583/

"We invite you to come for a public look at assessing how we fight the suffering caused by age-related disease, the effectiveness of these strategies, and then introduce SENS head researcher, Aubrey de Grey, and discuss some of his ideas as well as some criticisms.

We'll take a critical look at aging through Social, Cultural, Physiological, Biochemical perspectives to try to get a better understanding the implications of rejuvenative biotechnology in society.

We will also be assessing research opportunities available through the SENS foundation, for those interested.

Take a look at their website, if you haven't before (http://sens.org/sens-foundation).

Plus... A Life Extension First... FREE PIZZA to the first 20 RSVP's to this event!"

 

Do RSVP if you can make it, as there is only limited space available.  For those of you who can't come, I promise we'll start holding our regular Vancouver Transhumanism meetups soon.

Cheers,

Keegan

    A great presentation that was both factual and gripping, a sober look at our present and measured optimism for our future.

    Turned out great! Lots of thought-provoking questions after the presentation finished, and seven of us continued the discussion over coffee until the coffeehouse closed :)
