From the mailbag, the announcement of the annual Buck Institute symposium:
We are pleased to invite you to the 2007 Buck Institute Symposium on “Nutrient Signaling and Aging”.
At this 2.5 day meeting to be held at the Buck Institute for Age Research in Novato, CA, Monday 12th November through Wednesday 14th November, you will have the opportunity to listen to our 32 distinguished international speakers, participate in the discussions and the poster session.
Please check our website at www.buckinstitute.org and click on “events, scientific events” for further information on the meeting, including speakers, registration, travel and accommodation or contact me direct.
Register early to guarantee your place and take advantage of the early bird rate!
We look forward to hearing from you and seeing you at the Institute this fall.
This overlaps with both my fellowship foundation‘s annual meeting and the first day of the Keck Futures Initiative “Future of Human Healthspan” conference, both of which I’m going to try to attend, so I’m probably only going to be able to be there the first day. I’d nonetheless strongly recommend it to interested scientists — I’ve attended the last several years, and it’s always fun and informative.
Note to the California biogerontology community: Next year, maybe get your act together and try having your meetings on different days. 😉
