From the mailbag (admittedly, it was the interdepartmental mail):
SYSTEMS BIOLOGY OF AGING SYMPOSIUM November 10-13, 2009
Buck Institute for Age Research
8001 Redwood Blvd.
Novato, CA 94945
The 2009 Buck Institute Symposium on Systems Biology and Aging will bring together renowned researchers from diverse backgrounds to discuss the emerging synergies between new technologies, integrative biology, aging, and age-related disease.
Rest assured that the scientists who work at the Buck don’t actually utter phrases like “emerging synergies”; I have no idea who they think that will appeal to. The web page for the symposium is still a work in progress, so that might just be a filler paragraph.
The roster of speakers is already damn impressive; it should be a great meeting.
