Interventions in Aging

Understanding mechanisms and the promise of extending human healthspan

02 Feb 2015 - 05 Feb 2015

Cancun, Mexico

Synopsis

The first in the series of the Intervention in Aging Fusion conferences.

A plethora of genetic, dietary and pharmacological interventions can extend healthy lifespan in laboratory animals, and can delay or ameliorate diverse aging-related diseases. Many of the signalling pathways involved are evolutionarily conserved, and are starting to be implicated in human aging. This raises the intriguing possibility of performing preventative medicine against the chronic diseases of our time by targeting the main risk factor for all of them, namely aging. Two important current challenges in the field are (1) to understand the downstream pathways by which longevity interventions combat age-related loss of function and pathology, and (2) to translate the findings into the extension of human healthspan.

Target Audience

This interdisciplinary meeting will address the above two challenges in depth, with participation from basic scientists, physicians and pharmacology experts.  

Key Sessions

  1. Pharmacological manipulation
  2. Nutrition
  3. Proteostasis
  4. Muscle and health during aging
  5. Sensory and systemic effects on aging
  6. Signalling pathways and aging
