John Smart will give a talk, Chemical brain preservation: How to live "forever" at World Future 2012 in Toronto.
We are presently assembling an expert panel to serve as judges of competitor submissions for the Technology Prize. All Technology Prize judges are also members of the BPF Advisory Board, advising BPF on our institutional and societal mission.
Currrent judges are:
Ken Hayworth, Ph.D., Postdoctoral Researcher, ATLUM Project, Harvard University, Cognitive science researcher
Sebastian Seung, Ph.D., Author, Professor of Computational Neuroscience, Dept. of Brain and Cog. Sciences, MIT
If you know of other potential judges with strong neuroscience and electron microscopy diagnostic experience who might be willing to donate time to the cause of advancing humanity's whole brain preservation science and technology, we'd love to hear from you.
Please consider joining our Facebook page (social networking), our LinkedIn group (professional networking), and/or our Twitter feed (brief news updates). These are our primary interaction fora at present. The more practical, open-minded, future oriented, and rational folks who join the BPF community, the faster we can achieve our ambitious goals. Thanks for connecting!
