Aging — 2nd Interventions in Aging Conference: Understanding Mechanisms & Compressing Morbidity in Aging Humans
ID
843038
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
830392
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.

Keystone Symposia - Aging and Mechanisms of Aging-Related Disease
ID
825277
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.

FASEB SRC — Reversible Acetylation on Health and Disease (HDACs)
ID
871083
Dates
06 Aug 2017 - 11 Aug 2017
Location
Big Sky, Montana, United States
Abstract
Over the past few years, the “epigenetic” regulation of the genome has become increasingly important to understanding both the etiology and fundamental mechanisms of aging and age-related diseases. Key to epigenetic regulation are two classes of lysine-modifying enzymes, the histone deacetylases (sirtuins and HDACs) and the histone acetyltransferases (HATs). Both classes of enzyme are critical for maintaining youthful gene expression patterns, cell cycle progression, DNA repair, stem cells, mitochondria, cell fate, differentiation, cognition, energy utilization, and the pathogenesis of most age-related diseases. Alterations in sirtuin and HDAC function have been linked to neurodegenerative disorders, muscle wasting, cardiac hypertrophy, cancer, HIV infection, and more generally the process of aging. Several HDAC inhibitors have been approved by FDA to treat various cancers. Small molecule modulators of sirtuins are currently in clinical trials for the treatment of cancers, neuromuscular disorders, inflammatory and metabolic disorders. With particular relevance to aging, the sirtuins, a subclass of HDAC, were first identified in yeast genetic studies as regulators of lifespan and the health benefits of dietary restriction. Activation or overexpression of sirtuins have been shown to protect mice and primates from diseases of aging, and extend mean and maximum lifespan of mice. Therefore, a thorough understanding of sirtuins and HDACs is required, not merely for understanding the regulation of chromatin structure, gene regulation and protein function, but also because these enzymes are intimately involved in normal and abnormal cellular processes that greatly impact human health. Although targeting HATs for therapeutic purposes has been relatively slow compared to targeting deacetylases, exciting new progress has also been made in recent years. Importantly, targeting the bromodomains present in many HATs has attracted a lot of attention lately.
