We are happy to announce Dr. Evan Snyder as a speaker for the 2019 Undoing Aging Conference.
Evan Y. Snyder earned his M.D. and Ph.D. (in neuroscience) from the University of Pennsylvania in 1980 as a member of NIH's Medical Scientist Training Program (MSTP). He had also studied psychology and linguistics at the University of Oxford. After moving to Boston, he completed residencies in pediatrics and neurology as well as a clinical fellowship in Neonatal-Perinatal Medicine at Children's Hospital-Boston, Harvard Medical School. In 1989, he became an attending physician in the Department of Pediatrics (Division of Newborn Medicine) and Department of Neurology at Children's Hospital-Boston, Harvard Medical School. From 1985-1991, he conducted postdoctoral research as a fellow in the Department of Genetics, Harvard Medical School.
In 1992, Dr. Snyder was appointed an instructor in neurology (neonatology) at Harvard Medical School and was promoted to assistant professor in 1996.
In 2003, Dr. Snyder was recruited to Sanford-Burnham Medical Research Institute as Professor and Director of the Program in Stem Cell and Regenerative Biology. He then inaugurated the Stem Cell Research Center (serving as its founding director) and initiated the Southern California Stem Cell Consortium. Dr. Snyder is a Fellow of the American Academy of Pediatrics (FAAP). He also received training in Philosophy and Linguistics at Oxford University.
"Evan needs no introduction to anyone who works in regenerative medicine; he has been at the pinnacle of that field for decades. I’ve been delighted that SENS Research Foundation has been able to work closely with him over the past few years, especially in the form of his annual hosting of some of our outstanding summer interns - he doesn’t even vet them himself any more, because he knows how stellar our recruits invariably are! I’m intensely proud to have such a titan of our field on the Undoing Aging program", says Aubrey de Grey.
