2013 CR Society Conference
The next CR Society conference will be held at the Buck Institute for Research on Aging in Novato California June 5 - 8, 2013 (click here for photos taken during a 2012 visit to the Buck Institute - select "View all Images" on the lower-right).
This conference will mark the 10-year anniversary of the founding of the CR Society as a non profit organization at CR II which was held in Madison Wisconsin June 5 - 8 2003.
The topics will include CR and Cancer, CR Primate Studies, Biological Clocks and Physical Activity, Stem cell/senescence/rejuvenation.
This will be a very special opportunity to interact with CR comrades, and researchers at the Buck Institute, see and tour the Buck Institute - not to be missed!
Two tours will be offered.
The Kapahi Lab tour will be offered at two times, but each will be limited to the first 20 to sign up during the conference registration process..........
- The Buck Institute's docent-led Institute tour
"Tour participants will:
Explore the biological mysteries of aging;
Experience the architecture of I.M. Pei; and
Discover what scientists are learning about Alzheimer's, cancer, stroke and other age-related diseases"
- A special tour of the Kapahi Lab (possibly more) led by Dr. Pankaj Kapahi, leading researcher and conference speaker.
"Dr. Kapahi looks for clues to longevity. His work confirms the finding that diet plays a major role in aging, and age-related diseases.
The Kapahi lab explores molecular mechanisms in a search for strategies to extend healthy lifespan in people."
