Epigenetics and aging: Biological clocks in health and disease
Online event about epigenetic clocks and how they affect aging in health and disease organized by The Royal Society of Medicine, with key speakers Claudio Franceschi, Steve Horvath, Cathal McCrory and David A. Sinclair.
This webinar brings together an international lineup of expert speakers to cover the latest on epigenetic clocks and how they affect aging in health and disease. The meeting will also introduce the concepts of accelerated and decelerated epigenetic aging, how they affect men and women differently, and how epigenetics may be used to reverse aging-associated diseases. This will be the first meeting to present work showing the power of epigenetic plasticity in reversing age-associated diseases.
During this webinar you will:
- Understand the impact of epigenetics on aging as well as instances of epigenetic age acceleration and deceleration
- Appreciate the epigenetic mechanisms of sex-specific aging
- Ascertain how lifestyles and other factors determine healthy and unhealthy aging
This webinar will be an exciting chance to hear from specialists in the field of biology, genetics, epigenetics, biomathematics, and psychiatry. This webinar is CPD accredited.
The main speakers at the event are Claudio Franceschi, Steve Horvath, Cathal McCrory and David A. Sinclair.
