7th Alcor Conference Converage

Abstract:
The 7th Alcor conference wrapped up yesterday: a conference at the intersection of the healthy life extension, cryonics, advanced nanotechnology and transhumanist communities. You'll find ample coverage from the Alcor blog; some snippets below:

7th Alcor Conference, Friday Morning sessions:

Alcor policy specialist Barry Aarons gave an introductory speech summarizing the recent progress of Alcor's status as a research entitity in Arizona. Indeed, within only four years, Alcor has progressed from being existentially threatened by the state government, to being perceived as an accepted research and technology institute furthering the public good. We are all grateful to Barry and the Alcor leadership for their excellent public relations work that made this possible. The next step should be to strengthen Alcor's relations to other leading Biotech institutions in Arizona, and begin collaborations with efforts like the Biodesign Institute in Tempe, or the Bio5 in Tucson. In the long term, this should establish Alcor as an indispensible part of Arizona's sprawling academic and Industrial Biotech network.
