Cynthia was the first to look for genes on the basis of their expression profiles, discovering that DNA damaging agents activate a battery of DNA repair genes in E. coli. Her discovery that a single-gene mutation could double the lifespan of C. elegans sparked an intensive study of the molecular biology of aging. These findings have now led to the discovery that an evolutionarily conserved hormone signaling system controls aging in other organisms as well, including mammals. She has received many honors and awards for her findings.
The agenda also includes seven panel discussions focused on advances and breakthroughs in cognitive computing, material science, manufacturing, robotics, biotechnology, location based services and semiconductor. The panelists are world-class experts, innovators and thought leaders from leading companies and prestigious universities.
