Cell Fate Diversity in Aging
ID
781686
Dates
25 Sep 2016 - 28 Sep 2016
Location
Dubrovnik, Croatia
Abstract
Aging is the largest risk factor for a panoply of chronic diseases, which impose huge burdens on societies and economies. An underexplored yet critical aspect of aging is the multiplicity of cellular phenotypes that emerge in aging metazoans. The Zing conference on “Cell Fate Diversity in Aging” will focus on molecular processes that give rise to these cellular phenotypes and their tissue-specific consequences. It will discuss processes such as damage, developmental cascades and pleiotropic effects in driving different cell fates, including cell death, senescence, adaptive reprogramming and cell fitness.

Caring for Older people: How Can We Do the Right Things Right?
ID
773445
Dates
04 Oct 2016 - 07 Oct 2016
Location
Rotterdam, Netherlands
Abstract
Health care around the globe is facing extraordinary challenges due to demographic changes, changing patterns of diseases, budgetary restrictions and changing expectations of patients. Health care is increasingly becoming caring for older people and yet we know health care is often not fitting their needs. Nurses play increasingly important roles in efforts to tackle these challenges. They are key players in the provision of safe, high-quality and efficient health services. Their key role makes nurses increasingly subject of criticism and blaming by the media when quality care is not provided. Are nurses failing to deliver quality care? What education do they need? How can nurses live up to the expectations of the public? How can patient and public involvement contribute to the quality of nursing care? To face these challenges and to ensure nurses’ contribution to quality care an essential step is the strengthening of evidence based practice and innovation.

Location
Lisbon, Portugal
Abstract
The 12th Congress of the European Union Geriatric Medicine Society (EUGMS) is going to be held in Lisbon, Portugal, from 5 to 7 October 2016. Portugal, with almost 900 years of history is the oldest nation-state in Europe and Lisbon, its capital is the city located further west in Europe and it is located on the north bank of the Tagus river estuary, which flows into the Atlantic Ocean. Both river and sea proximity, offers to Lisbon a very special mild climate and a unique light. The seven hills city is also known for the excellent cuisine, for its ancient and picturesque corners that contrasts between modern and cosmopolitan area. Lisbon in the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries has become known by the Portuguese Discoveries, through its maritime port from where the caravels left and arrived to Africa, Asia, Oceania and South America, expanding Western influence by all continents and establishing an empire that lasted nearly 600 years.

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
825211
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.
