Epigenetic and Metabolic Regulation of Aging and Aging-Related Diseases (E1)

May 1—5, 2016

Hilton Santa Fe Historic Plaza Hotel, Santa Fe, New Mexico, USA

Scientific Organizers: Anne Brunet, David M. Sabatini and Shelley L. Berger

Aging is one of the greatest fundamental mysteries in biology, and arguably its next frontier. Long thought to be inexorable, aging has in fact been shown to be malleable due to specific changes in genes or environment. This meeting will cover the most exciting questions at the forefront of the field: How can external stimuli delay aging in a long-lasting, yet reversible, manner? Does the integration of external stimuli to modulate aging differ among cells with vastly diverse functions – somatic maintenance, tissue regeneration and the “immortal” germline? Is aging a synchronous process, and how do the different cells and systems communicate? How do diseases of aging develop, and what can be done to prevent or reverse them? To address these questions, the symposium gathers investigators...

Cell Symposia Aging and Metabolism

Cell Symposia Aging and Metabolism

July 10th - 12th 2016, Melia Sitges, Spain

''The word "aging" encompasses a range of physiological changes in humans, human tissues, and constituent cells. Alterations in metabolism, whether at the level of small molecules, protein homeostasis, signaling patterns, or intertissue communication, underpin many of the processes that ultimately decline or shift during aging. The recent wealth of information on how perturbation of metabolic factors can accelerate or impair aging processes makes this an exciting time to convene and consider the new biology being uncovered, its potential impact on human health, and the implications for the coming age of precision medicine.

This meeting brings together scientists who have interests in aging and metabolism to explore the growing intersection between these fields and to discuss key questions in this area for human health and disease. Leaders in the field will share results from cellular research, investigations in model organisms, and studies with translational impact rooted in...
