About the conference
We are pleased to announce the 3rd Australian Biology of Ageing conference, with a particular focus on Stem Cells, Ageing & Rejuvenation.
The conference will cover the latest findings across many topics in ageing relevant basic biomedical researches. Many talks will be selected from the openly submitted abstracts on the basis of scientific merit and relevance. Social events throughout the conference provide ample opportunity for informal interactions.
Our life expectancy has continuously increased over the past decades and with more than a quarter of Australians estimated to reach over 65 years of age by 2050, ageing research is becoming increasingly relevant to our society. The conference will bring together researchers from across Australia to discuss highly innovative and multidisciplinary research programs to tackle the challenges of demographic change and an ageing society. The impending substantial socio-economic impacts of ageing demands that we understand the fundamental mechanisms of ageing and develop innovative clinically translatable solutions to foster healthy ageing, allowing the ageing population to have an active, productive, healthy life, less susceptible to disease and disability.
We hope that this meeting will foster new cross-disciplinary collaborations in the scientific community, by bringing together researchers from diverse fields including stem cell biology, regenerative engineering, metabolism, epigenetics, cell biology, systems biology, neurobiology, proteomics, cancer, physiology, geriatric medicine, nutrition and genomics.
