Rejuvenation biotechnology: why age may soon cease to mean aging
Guest Lecturer: Dr. Aubrey de Grey Dr. Aubrey de Grey is a biomedical gerontologist based in Mountain View, California, USA, and is the Chief Science Officer of SENS Research Foundation, a California-based 501(c)(3) biomedical research charity that performs and funds laboratory research dedicated to combating the aging process. He is also VP of New Technology Discovery at AgeX Therapeutics, a biotechnology startup developing new therapies in the field of biomedical gerontology. In addition, he is Editor-in-Chief of Rejuvenation Research, the world’s highest-impact peer-reviewed journal focused on intervention in aging. He received his BA in computer science and Ph.D. in biology from the University of Cambridge. His research interests encompass the characterization of all the types of self-inflicted cellular and molecular damage that constitute mammalian aging and the design of interventions to repair and/or obviate that damage. Dr. de Grey is a Fellow of both the Gerontological Society of America and the American Aging Association, and sits on the editorial and scientific advisory boards of numerous journals and organisations. He is a highly sought-after speaker who gives 40-50 invited talks per year at scientific conferences, universities, companies in areas ranging from pharma to life insurance, and to the public. Lecture Topic: Rejuvenation biotechnology: why age may soon cease to mean aging People are living longer than they used to - no longer because of reductions in child mortality, but because we are postponing the ill-health of old age. But you’ve seen nothing yet: regenerative medicine and other new biomedical technologies will eventually be so comprehensive that people will stay truly youthful however long they live - which means they may mostly live very long indeed. The social and economic consequences of this transition will pervade every aspect of our lives. I will discuss both the biology and the sociology of what will be the most momentous advance in the history of civilisation. Cost: $10 to help support these types of lectures.

What we're about

We believe that innovations in biology should be
accessible, affordable, and open to everyone.

We’re building a community biology lab for
amateurs, inventors, entrepreneurs,
and anyone who wants to
experiment with friends.

BioCurious Community Lab

Opened in Sunnyvale, CA; Fall 2011! and in 2017 we moved to Santa Clara.

Join the discussion at Google Groups

Our successful Kickstarter campaign ( http://biocurious.org/kickstarter ) brought together volunteers and other biology enthusiasts eager to create a community lab, and they helped us raise over $35,000.

We are a 4100 sq. ft. facility in the heart of Silicon Valley. Come join us and see the next big thing to start in a Silicon Valley garage.

BioCurious is…

a complete working laboratory and technical library
for entrepreneurs to cheaply access
equipment, materials, and co-working space
a training center for biotechniques, with an emphasis on safety
a meeting place for citizen scientists, hobbyists,
activists, and students

=====

Science is all around us. Many find a love for it at an early age, but few continue to learn after leaving educational institutions. For those who continue to seek to know, there is BioCurious. Curious about biology? Come to a meetup to find other like-minded folk!

BioCurious is a completely volunteer run non-profit organization. We serve the community by providing lab space and classes to members and the community.

There are plenty of ways to get involved:

become a member

teach a class

take a class

donate your time, money

change the world
