Next MouseAGE annual meeting will take place at Athens in the IUBMB Focused Meeting on «Molecular aspects of aging and longevity», 16-19 October, Greece.
International Union of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology (IUBMB) entrusted the organization of this focused meeting to Athens, as it was considered to be the ideal setting for gathering together young researchers and leading investigators from many countries.
Aging is an inevitable biological process. Unravelling the fundamental molecular mechanisms of aging and longevity is a pre-requisite for developing appropriate means of increasing “healthy lifespan”. The Meeting will focus on these axes as it aims to integrate the latest research developments and new technologies from internationally acknowledged experts as well as to attract young scientists in the field and to give them the opportunity to discuss with experts. Emphasis will be given to young group-leaders and it will have an additional session for presentations by young scientists. Finally, it’ll provide several travel fellowships to young scientists, especially from the developing countries.
Some of already confirmed invited speakers:
- Vilhelm Bohr, Baltimore, USA
- Stathis Gonos, Athens, Greece
- Giovanni Grillari, Vienna, Austria
- Linda Partridge, London, UK
