Recommended Posts

Hi James!

 

Welcome to the CR Society!

 

Do a Google Search on "Calorie Resriction Society", and the URL for the CR Society's website will come up. Go to that website -- all the info for becoming a member of the Society,

and how to join the two mailing lists (free), is posted there. You can be sure that when we know where and when the next CR Society meeting will be held, it will be published to

both mailing lists, and also show up in the Forums.

 

:)

Hi James,

 

The next conference will be Wednesday June 5 through Saturday June 8 2013 at the Buck Institute for Research on Aging in Novato California.

We plan to have a welcome reception on Wednesday afternoon/evening at the conference hotel as attendees arrive.

The agenda is still a work in progress, but....

The main program at the Buck Institute will be 8:45am - 5:00pm on Thursday and Friday, and 8:45am to about 1:00pm on Saturday.

There will be an optional banquet lunch on Thursday and Friday and an optional dinner near the hotel on Thursday evening.

We will schedule a tour of the Buck Institute Thursday morning for everyone interested and a special tour of one (possibly more ) research lab for the first

about 40 who sign up. Saturday afternoon there will be some optional activities. We hope to have more details and the registration page

available very soon.

The next CR Society conference will be held at the Buck Institute for Research

on Aging in Novato California June 5 - 8, 2013.

http://www.buckinstitute.org/about <http://www.buckinstitute.org/about>

 

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 and to see and tour the Buck Institute - not

to be missed!

 

Two tours will be offered.

 

1. The Buck Institutes'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"

 

http://www.buckinstitute.org/tours

 

2. 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."

http://www.buckinstitute.org/kapahilab

 

The Kapahi Lab tour will be offered at two times, but each will have to be

limited to the first 20 to sign up during the conference registration
