Disease Drivers of Aging: 2016 Advances in Geroscience Summit
ID
779937
Dates
13 Apr 2016 - 14 Apr 2016
Location
New York, United States
Abstract
Cellular and organismal decline with aging has been shown to promote chronic disease pathology, however insufficient research has focused on the inverse relationship, i.e., how chronic diseases and associated therapies can accelerate the onset of age-related changes. In October 2013, the National Institutes of Health hosted the groundbreaking event, Advances in Geroscience: Impact on Healthspan and Chronic Disease, a highly successful convening developed by the Trans-NIH GeroScience Interest Group (GSIG). This event was designed to explore how aging contributes to chronic disease pathology and progression, but it also highlighted the pressing need for further research on the impact of chronic diseases on the molecular pillars of aging.

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 13–14, 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.

Cell Fate Diversity in Aging
ID
781664
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
773456
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.

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.
