Molecular Biology of Ageing 2015 (25-28 October)

When:Su 25-10-2015 14:00 - 21:30
Where:University Medical Center in Groningen

Please join us from October 25-28, 2015 for a scientific meeting on the molecular biology of ageing in Groningen, the Netherlands.

Research into the fascinating biology of ageing is facing several challenges. The topic "biology of aging” is very broad and historically scientists have preferred more defined, often disease-oriented, research areas. A second problem is that scientists working in relevant areas do not meet on a regular basis and therefore do not speak with one voice. Yet more research into the biology of ageing is needed to address current gaps in our knowledge and, importantly, meet the global challenges triggered by an ageing population.

Based on the above we have think it is important to bring together leading researchers interested in the biology of ageing on a more regular basis.Following discussions with various stakeholders, we propose to have the first of such meeting in Groningen, a small but pretty university town in the North of the Netherlands, home of European Research Institute for the Biology of Ageing.

We have succeeded to convince outstanding scientists in diverse but relevant research areas to present their work and participate in the meeting. Based on the quality of the scientific programme we are very confident that the meeting offers an outstanding platform for science and education and will provide great value to every participant.

We hope that you will join us and we look forward to welcome you in Groningen.
