If you are interested in attending the “Understanding Aging” conference June 27-29, be aware that the registration deadline is rapidly approaching. From organizer Aubrey de Grey:

I am writing to remind you that the early registration and abstract submission deadlines for the conference “Understanding Aging: Biomedical and Bioengineering Approaches” are coming up on May 15th. This conference, to be held at UCLA, Los Angeles, California, USA on June 27th-29th 2008, is organised jointly by me, Irina Conboy of UC Berkeley, and Amy Wagers of Harvard. All details, including forms for abstract submission and online registration, are at the conference website:


Please note that standard registration fees are fully inclusive of three nights’ accommodation and all meals. However, there is also a deeply discounted non-residential rate of just $150 for students and $300 for others.


That non-residential rate is very attractive, especially if you’re already in the LA area.
