Miami Days

Two weeks ago I returned from my wonderful “workation” in Miami, where Poly and I traveled to participate in the 9th World Congress for Hair Research, to give a speech at the Church of Perpetual Life and to visit local Insilico Medicine collaborators.

I would like to thank the organizers of WCHR because they hosted an incredible meeting for more than 700 scientists and physicians from 53 countries. Actually, it was a unique possibility to share experiences and latest findings on hair follicle research. This conference helped us to establish new research collaborations, so I guess our special treatment for growing beautiful long hair will arrive soon!

On November 21, we were invited to discuss the importance of classifying aging as a disease and deep learning for aging research at the Church of Perpetual Life. Also, I was thrilled to meet another special guest at the event, transhumanist Zoltan Istvan, who gave a simply remarkable speech and turned out to be a very friendly and sweet person. 

All in all, it was a fruitful "workation" and I am looking forward to the next one (San Francisco countdown timer officially begins).

P.S. Special thanks to Michael Rabin who scanned my shed hair samples. It seems that at around 35 cm from the telogen bulb my hair follicles reset the anagen phase instead of moving into telogen. So, what is your superpower?
