Thursday 27 - Friday 28 April
The overwhelming burden of non-communicable disease is borne by the older population, with conditions treated or researched in isolation. With ageing now viewed as a programmed, biological phenomenon, there is the possibility that interventions in this process could be used to treat a broad range of diseases, and drastically reduce health spending.
We aim to encourage the study of ageing as an underlying program involved in disease processes. We hope that this meeting will foster new cross-disciplinary collaborations in the local community, by bringing together researchers from diverse fields including metabolism, epigenetics, cell biology, systems biology, neurobiology, proteomics, cancer, pharmacology, physiology, geriatric medicine, nutrition, genomics, evolutionary biology and ecology.
