Details about our meetings

The Fourth Symposium on 'Pathways to indefinite Lifespans' will take place in Larnaca, Cyprus on Saturday 21 May 2016.

 

More details to follow.

The Third Symposium on Pathways to Indefinite Lifespans 

 

Organised by the ELPIs Foundation for Indefinite Lifespans, and the Cyprus Neuroscience and Technology Institute

Where: The House of Arts and Literature, Larnaca, Cyprus

When: Saturday  23 May 2015 from 0900 am to 5 pm local time

How: A combination of oral and remote online presentations

What: We will discuss biomedical and non-biomedical ways of abolishing ageing.  Our aim is to discuss any ideas, hypotheses and suggestions regarding the total elimination of ageing and age-dependent degenerative pathology.

We will also celebrate a symbolic event, the 170th anniversary of the birth of the Russian/Ukranian scientist  Elie Metchnikoff, who first used the term 'gerontology'. The celebrations will involve events at the Symposium and during the week preceding it.

The meeting is generously sponsored by
