Healthy Ageing (Virtual Conference)

Virtual conference by Wellcome Connecting Science with Judith Campisi as a keynote speaker

25-May-2022 to 27-May-2022

The third conference in this series will focus on recent discoveries and current challenges in ageing research, with a focus on translating basic research insights into health improvement for older people.

Ageing can lead to declining health and function, and it is the major risk factor for cancer, neurodegenerative and cardiovascular disease. We aim to explore the mechanisms of ageing in cells, tissues and organisms in order to identify interventions that can ameliorate its negative effects.

The conference will focus on how recent developments in cell- and immune-senescence, neuroinflammation, stem cells and epigenetics are leading to an increased understanding of the ageing process. This year’s meeting will also highlight research into the ageing brain and nervous system and discuss lifestyle interventions for health improvement.

The meeting is aimed at scientists, clinicians and drug developers involved in research into ageing and other relevant fields.

-Darren Baker – Mayo Clinic, USA
