3rd Interventions in Aging Conference

03 Mar 2019 - 06 Mar 2019

Nassau, Bahamas

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. 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.

This third meeting will continue to explore these topics, with particular emphasis on the systemic environment, mitochondria, biomarkers and frailty, immune aging and the protective effects of natural products.

For those interested, this meeting follows the Mitochondria: From Basic Biology to Mechanisms of Disease Conference, taking place from 27 February - 02 March 2019 at the same venue.

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 healthspan.
