On Friday, June 27th, leading scientists and thinkers in stem cell research and regenerative medicine will gather in Los Angeles at UCLA for Aging 2008 to explain how their work can combat human aging and the sociological implications of developing rejuvenation therapies.

Alliance for Aging Research Executive Director Daniel Perry will be among the experts who will share insights with the audience. Aging 2008 will serve as the free opening session for the technically-focused Understanding Aging Conference which will be held at UCLA on June 28 and 29. The meetings are organized by the Methuselah Foundation, a nonprofit organization dedicated to extending the healthy human lifespan.
