The New Science of Ageing

Research into ageing has been galvanized by the discovery of single-gene mutations that extend healthy lifespan of laboratory animals and that delay multiple, ageing-related diseases. Evolutionary conservation of these genetic effects allows the use of invertebrates to understand human ageing. This meeting will discuss the scientific challenges and the prospects for a broad-spectrum, preventative medicine for age-related disease.
