AgeX Therapeutics to Present at Undoing Aging 2019, March 28-30 in Berlin, Germany

March 21, 2019

ALAMEDA, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Mar 21, 2019--AgeX Therapeutics, Inc. (NYSE American: AGE), a biotechnology company focused on innovative therapeutics for human aging, announced today that the company will present in multiple sessions at Undoing Aging 2019, March 28-30 in Berlin, Germany.

Details of the company’s participation follow:

  • Thursday, March 28, 7:00pm CET: “ Debate: is comprehensive damage repair feasible? ” with Aubrey de Grey, Ph.D., AgeX’s VP, New Technology Discovery and Vadim Gladyshev, Ph.D., Professor of Medicine at Harvard Medical School.
  • Friday, March 29, 10:00am CET: As part of the track “ Restoring Cellular Youth,” AgeX’s Founder and CEO Michael D. West, Ph.D., will deliver an update on the Company’s regenerative medicine product development, and in addition, present for the first time data relating to central molecular aging clockwork mechanisms the Company is targeting with its induced Tissue Regeneration (iTR TM ) program.

The conference also features a track, “Senolysis,” inspired in part by Dr. West’s research:

“It has been two decades since West and Campisi began to suggest that senescent cells might be more than just disabled, but actively toxic. Since 2011, their idea has not only been confirmed in the lab but has spawned a huge range of ideas for eliminating such cells, many of which are already being pursued in startups. The rate of progress is such that a single session at UA can no longer do justice to it - so, we’re having two!”

A copy of Dr. West’s presentation will be made available on the AgeX website.
