Conference-Service.com offers, as part of our business activities, a directory of upcoming scientific and technical meetings. The calendar is published for the convenience of conference participants and we strive to support conference organisers who need to publish their upcoming events. Although great care is being taken to ensure the correctness of all entries, we cannot accept any liability that may arise from the presence, absence or incorrectness of any particular information on this website.

Meeting organisers can submit meetings free of charge for inclusion into the listing.
To address this unmet need and to gather the community for a follow-up meeting, the New York Academy of Sciences, together with the NIH Geroscience Interest Group, the Gerontological Society of America and the American Federation for Aging Research will present the 1.5-day Disease Drivers of Aging: 2016 Advances in Geroscience Summit on April 13â14, 2016, in New York City. This landmark event will convene basic, translational, and clinical researchers from academic institutions, pharmaceutical companies, government agencies, and non-profit organizations, who work in the disparate fields of HIV/AIDS, oncology, diabetes, and aging research in an effort to better understand the complex relationship between chronic diseases and age-associated decline. Conference Sessions will combine basic, translational, and clinical researchers and will feature a unique format of short, focused talks centered on critical open research questions, along with interactive panel discussions. Speakers will explore the impact of chronic diseases (e.g., HIV/AIDS, diabetes, and cancer) and their associated therapies on rates of cellular and organismal aging in an attempt to elucidate the molecular mechanisms by which chronic diseases and treatments can accelerate age-related health decline. Participants will identify knowledge gaps and future directions of research required for a more complete understanding of the relationship between chronic diseases and aging.
