Aubrey de Grey's Methuselah foundation is having an event in LA later this month called Aging 2008. From the description:
Applying the new technologies of regenerative and genetic medicine, the engineering approach to aging promises to dramatically extend healthy human life within the next few decades.
How do you and your loved ones stand to benefit from the coming biomedical revolution? Are you prepared? Is society prepared?
It looks to be a fairly one-sided affair, with no ethicists or skeptics on the program, but nonetheless it's free and might be interesting if you want to hear more about what these people are up to.
At Aging 2008 you will engage with top scientists and advocates as they present their findings and advice, and learn what you can do to help accelerate progress towards a cure for the disease and suffering of aging.
