Three Upcoming Aging Research Events

Three buildingsThree buildings

The next few months include some events that should probably be on everyone’s calendars for keeping up with the latest research and biotech investment developments.

Longevity Investors Conference

On October 1, the Longevity Investors Conference will bring us some sterling speakers from the world of research and investment. David Sinclair, Aubrey de Grey, Nir Barzilai, JoΓ£o Pedro de MagalhΓ£es, Alexandra Bause, Eric Verdin, and Jim Mellon are just some of the great speakers lined up for the event this year.

This conference has a particular focus on the investment side of longevity research and biotechnology with a program geared towards investors, including ultra-high net worth individuals, family offices, VCs, private equity funds, private banks and asset managers.

It is good to also see that the topics of rejuvenation and radical life extension are also going to be part of the proceedings and given proper consideration in the context of the research happening now. With the successful development of therapies that target aging, there is every possibility that they might increase healthy human lifespan, and it is important to acknowledge and embrace that possibility now while being up front about it. It is good to see that new investor audiences at the conference will be introduced to these topics.

There are two ticket options: the free ticket includes access to the two keynotes with Aubrey de Grey and David Sinclair, and the VIP ticket, priced at $395, will get you access to the investor panels, including virtual networking with other investors. You will need to register for either choice of ticket by September 30th, so act soon to avoid disappointment.

Eurosymposium on Healthy Ageing

The Eurosymposium on Healthy Ageing will be returning for its fifth outing on October 1st. The event is usually hosted in Brussels but, due to the pandemic, has opted to go online this year.

This event is smaller in scale than the larger research conferences, and in the past, it has typically included a good number of enthusiasts and activists for aging research that are active in Europe, making it ideal if you are looking to meet fellow supporters there.

There are few details about the event as of now, so keep an eye on the site for information that should be coming soon. Entry to the event is free, though registration is requested in order to join, so act soon if you want to be involved.

Targeting Metabesity 2020

On 12-15th October, the Targeting Metabesity 2020 conference will take place. This is the third conference in this series, and it promises to bring insights from the leaders in the fields of geroscience, gerontology, behavioral science, environments for aging, government and capital markets.

Like most conferences this year, the pandemic has led to the event being hosted online rather than in person. This is the shape of things as they are now and the new normal; that said, online events are becoming increasingly complex and sophisticated in their quest to emulate physical events, and this one looks to be no exception.

The event has over 40 speakers appearing over the four-day event and includes talks by longevity heavyweights Aubrey de Grey, Nir Barzilai, Vadim Gladyshev, Steve Horvath, Brian Kennedy, Matt Kaeberlein, Morgan Levine, Polina Mamoshina, James Peyer, Vittorio Sebastiano, Kris Verburgh, and many more.

Tickets to the event are free and give access to all the sessions, and, for just $99, there is a premium ticket that gives access to the video recordings, a directory of attendees, speakers and sponsors, and an e-book of our curated posters. If you have a keen interest in research, you can register for your ticket today.
