Keystone Symposia: Pushing the Limits of Healthspan and Longevity
April 15th, 2018
to April 19th, 2018
About the Event
This conference addresses factors that may contribute to healthier lifestyles and outcomes, thereby delaying the onset of age-associated diseases and extending longevity. The focus is to highlight cutting-edge advances in aging research, novel technologies and potential therapeutic interventions. Included are talks on mechanisms of aging in a wide range of established and non-traditional animal models with the key objective to enhance understanding of the basic biology behind experimental and lifestyle manipulations thought to have direct translational application to human aging. The conference will focus on topics not covered at previous Keystone Symposia meetings on aging biology and will specifically examine both the fundamental mechanisms involved in the aging process as well as interventions and potential therapeutics that may delay aging and the onset of age-associated diseases to forge a deeper understanding of the complex, multifactorial aging process. The discussions of novel interventions and/or therapeutics that appear to slow aging processes will, in turn, guide the field toward facilitating extended periods of good health and prolonging lifespan in humans.
