Strategies for Engineered Negligible Senescence: Reasons Why Genuine Control of Aging may be Foreseeable

The International Association of Biomedical Gerontology 10th Congress - Queens' College, Cambridge, England 19-23 September 2003

The purpose of the International Association of Biomedical Gerontology is (1) to make the general public more aware of the potential of biomedical aging research to increase the span of healthy productive life and to decrease the social and economic problems of age; and (2) to promote greater communication among the worldwide community of individuals engaged in biomedical aging research.

A quick look at the conference program makes it obvious that this is an event of clear extropian interest, with presentations tackling both highly specialised subjects (e.g.: Senescence Marker Protein-30 (SMP30) as a novel anti-ageing molecule) and the broader social implications (e.g.: Social, Political, and Ethical Obstacles to Human Life Extension).

The full list of abstracts (over 150) is here.
