Aging — 2nd Interventions in Aging Conference: Understanding Mechanisms & Compressing Morbidity in Aging Humans
ID
843005
Dates
02 Mar 2017 - 05 Mar 2017
Location
Cancun, Mexico
Abstract
A plethora of genetic, dietary and pharmacological interventions can extend healthy lifespan in laboratory animals, and can delay or ameliorate diverse aging-related diseases. Many of the signalling pathways involved are evolutionarily conserved, and are starting to be implicated in human aging. This raises the intriguing possibility of performing preventative medicine against the chronic diseases of our time by targeting the main risk factor for all of them, namely aging. Two important current challenges in the field are (1) to understand the downstream pathways by which longevity interventions combat age-related loss of function and pathology, and (2) to translate the findings into the extension of human healthspan.

Immuno-Metabolic Mechanisms of Atherosclerosis: Novel critical mediators and therapeutic targets
ID
830447
Dates
11 Mar 2017 - 14 Mar 2017
Location
Cancun, Mexico
Abstract
The goal of this meeting is to provide attendees with a comprehensive overview of current research on atherosclerosis with a focus on the latest and most exciting developments in the immuno-metabolic mechanisms that govern disease initiation and progression. There is little doubt that the next most exciting therapy to combat cardiovascular disease will be based on targeting a biological pathway that will have been discussed during this conference. We will also review the pathways that govern inflammation resolution, their regulation by bioactive lipids, and how they can be harnessed to develop new therapeutic strategies to combat the disease. Finally, we will discuss existing and validated targets that are now in late-phase clinical trials. Key Sesseions Vascular Cell Activation and Dysfunction, Arterial monocytes/macrophages in health and disease, Innate immunity, NETosis, necroptosis, inflammasome, T Cell Immune Responses, B Cell Immune Responses, Adipose Tissue Inflammation, Insulin Resistance, Atherosclerosis, Resolution of Inflammation, Immunotherapies,

Keystone Symposia - Aging and Mechanisms of Aging-Related Disease
ID
825288
Dates
15 May 2017 - 19 May 2017
Location
Yokohama, Japan
Abstract
Populations are aging rapidly worldwide, particularly in Asia, driving a strong interest in aging/longevity research. This Keystone Symposia meeting will capture the cutting-edge front of this exciting field of science, covering essential aspects of aging/longevity research, including critical signaling pathways and regulators, inter-tissue communication, stem cells, stress and damage responses, cellular senescence, physiological rhythms, human genetics and mental well-being (happiness). Because aging is a systemic phenomenon, it is important to address various layers of the aging/longevity-controlling hierarchy, particularly focusing on metabolic regulation, including mitochondria, NAD+, oxidative stress, inflammation, protein homeostasis, autophagy and many other age-associated pathophysiologies. The outcome of these studies needs to be translated to resolve social and economic issues caused by rapidly aging societies. Novel therapeutic and preventive interventions have been explored and developed as a growing attempt to meet the unmet needs of our aging societies, and these new aspects of aging/longevity research and the gaps in knowledge between the basic science and practical applications will also be covered in the meeting. There is a growing body of evidence that our modern lifestyle, such as the heavy use of blue light in smart phones and tablet computers, affects physiological rhythms and metabolism, promoting age-associated diseases such as obesity, diabetes, cancer and depression. Therefore, it is now time to think differently about what we can do to deal with all these problems in light of recent progress in this exciting field of science.
