Speaker Videos - 2016 Age Reversal Breakfast
On January 12, 2016, the Palm Beach Business Group (http://www.pbbusinessgroup.com) hosted the Age Reversal Breakfast at the Breakers Palm Beach hotel. Information about the presenters can be found in our blog. Those in attendance were amazed at the high quality of scientific work that has been done in an area previously filled with pseudo-science and ineffective therapies. We thank our speakers for being willing to speak at our event, and to those speakers who provided their slides to reintegrate into their presentations.
Mr. Richard Parker, CEO Morphologie.
In his brief presentation, he speaks about the technology underlying his company, and how it allows ultrafine resolution of fibrous tissues imaged in three-dimensional ultrasonograms after cloud-based proprietary digital processing, combined with a simple end user-friendly instrumental interface.
Bill Andrews, founder and CEO of Sierra Sciences.
The company is focused on the pioneering development of telomerase inducers to reverse the effects of aging on human tissues. In his presentation, Dr. Andrews presents the major events in the history of telomerase research on reversing the aging process, describes how his company shall make age reversal therapies available, and offers an investment opportunity to help fund his company's research and the sale of successful products developed by his company.
Dr. H. Thomas Temple, M.D., Senior Vice President for Translational Research and Economic Development and Professor of Orthopaedic Surgery at the new Center for Collaborative Research (CCR).
In his brief presentation, he speaks about the new changes occurring at NSU, emphasizing the concentration of new biotechnological resources at the new $81,000,000 biomedical research facility at Nova Southeastern University called the Center for Collaborative Research (CCR).
Dr. Dipnarine Maharaj. M.D., F.A.C.P. He is the Director of the South Florida Bone Marrow/Stem Cell Transplant Institute.
In his presentation, he speaks about the banking of bone marrow-derived stem cells from younger patients (in which the immune system is still young and fully functional) in order to transplant them back into the same patients as they age and lose their ability to fully repair tissues after inflammatory events, or protect themselves from spontaneously emerging cancers. Concerning this new field, called regenerative medicine (analogous to self-parabiosis), he discusses new strategies designed to supplement or replace the cells of the senescent immune system with younger cells from the same patient, extracted and cryogenically preserved for long periods of time. These techniques have been shown to reverse symptoms of degenerative diseases, and improve the body's resistance to the development of cancer.
Dr. Roy Smith, Chairman of the Metabolism and Anti-Aging Department at The Scripps Research Institute, Florida campus.
In his presentation, he speaks about his desire to improve physiological function during our later years in life. To this end, he works with small molecules that act within the brain to drive improved secretion of growth hormone within its physiological, diurnal cycles. This molecule also shows effects in improving memory recollection among aged mice.
Dr. Richard Jove, Cell Therapy Institute (CTI).
In his presentation, he speaks about the CCR, the mission of the CTI, and the Karolinska Institutet with whom the CTI collaborates. He also speaks about the major research projects going on at the CTI and the research stuff who are performing that research. He finishes by mentioning that plenty of opportunities are available for philanthropists to contribute and participate in the long-term success of this new institute.
