Cell symposia| Aging and Metabolism 2016
10 – 12 July 2016 | Melia Sitges, Spain
The word “aging” encompasses a range of physiological changes in humans, human tissues, and constituent cells. Alterations in metabolism, whether at the level of small molecules, protein homeostasis, signaling patterns, or intertissue communication, underpin many of the processes that ultimately decline or shift during aging. The recent wealth of information on how perturbation of metabolic factors can accelerate or impair aging processes makes this an exciting time to convene and consider the new biology being uncovered, its potential impact on human health, and the implications for the coming age of precision medicine.
This meeting brings together scientists who have interests in aging and metabolism to explore the growing intersection between these fields and to discuss key questions in this area for human health and disease. Leaders in the field will share results from cellular research, investigations in model organisms, and studies with translational impact rooted in mammalian systems.
