4<sup>th </sup>Interventions in Aging Virtual Conference

Conference information

Synopsis

A plethora of genetic, dietary, and pharmacological interventions can extend healthy lifespan in laboratory animals and can delay or ameliorate diverse aging-related diseases. Mechanisms of aging are conserved in evolution, and discoveries made in animals are informing our understanding of human aging. This raises the intriguing possibility of performing preventative medicine against chronic and age-related diseases, by targeting their main risk factor, namely aging. Important current challenges in the field are (1) to understand the downstream pathways by which longevity interventions can combat age-related loss of function and pathology, (2) to evaluate the impact of regenerative interventions and cellular reprogramming on age-related diseases, and (3) to translate the findings into the extension of human health span.  

This fourth meeting will continue to explore these topics, with particular emphasis on what we can learn from variation in the rate of ageing in the natural world, mitochondria, cellular senescence, biomarkers and epidemiology, immune aging and reprogramming and rejuvenation strategies.

Key Sessions

  • Mitochondrial quality control and aging
  • Autophagy and proteostasis
  • Regenerative interventions and cellular reprogramming
  • Human ageing: biomarkers and cell senescence

Grants

We have complimentary registrations available for postdocs and students. Please submit an abstract for talk or poster consideration via email to Chloe, along with a short message outlining why you would benefit from attending this conference. Applications must be submitted by 10th August 2021 for consideration.

Abstract Submission

Please send talk and poster abstract submissions via email to the Conference Manager, Chloe. The oral and poster deadlines are noted above. We advise early submission to avoid disappointment due to limited slots. 

Target Audience

  • Basic scientists in the field of aging research using animal models.
  • Human researchers interested in biomarkers of aging.
  • Clinical trials specialists in aging and associated diseases.
  • Scientists and other professionals developing aging interventions.
  • Investors looking to enter this new space.
  • Educated public.

Educational Need

The aging field encompasses a wide range of biology, involving many model organisms and, with respect to mammals, the involvement of many tissues. In addition, translational strategies to modify the rate of aging range from lifestyle change to drugs and, more recently stem cell-based therapeutics. As such, there is an abiding need to bring together scientists across diverse fields with the purpose of providing a clear overview of the state of basic research in aging and the development of translational strategies. The goal is to create cross-fertilization between scientists in different areas, accelerating the development of interventions that extend human health span.
