Mechanisms of Aging

  December 28, 2017  

Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory, Cold Spring Harbor, New York
October 1 - 5, 2018

The meeting will explore the regulation and function of genes and processes that are now known or suspected to control cellular and/or organismic aging.

Preliminary Topics:
  • Longevity Genes & Human Biology
  • DNA Repair/Senescence
  • Inflammation/Immunity
  • Epigenetics
  • Homestasis (Proteostasis, Mitochondrial Energetics)
  • Metabolism (Intercellular Communication/Microbiome)
  • Tissue Maintenance/Stem Cells
  • Comparative Biology/Non-standard Models
  • Interventions (Nutrition/Pharmacology)
The format of the meeting will include seven oral sessions consisting of invited and short talks, chosen from the submitted abstracts, and one poster session. All speakers and chairs are strongly encouraged to stay for the entire meeting. The organizers will decide the suitability of each abstract for oral or poster presentation, but please specify if you prefer a poster.

Abstracts should contain only new and unpublished material and must be submitted electronically by the abstract deadline. Selection of material for oral and poster presentation will be made by the organizers and individual session chairs. Status (talk/poster) of abstracts will be posted on our web site as soon as decisions have been made by the organizers.
We look forward to seeing you at Cold Spring Harbor in at the end of September.
