This is just the kind of thing that I would like to see follow on from the Biotech Futures (Extro 4) conference. It fits nicely into the info portal plan. It would take some funding to get going, but ExI does intend to pursue post-conference funding so that ideas, information, and activity generated by the event continue after those two days. A center for information on what LE researchers are doing and where would be an obvious component for the part of the portal dedicated to life extension, and a prime candidate for starting off the portal since the conference will focus on this area, along with genetic engineering.
