This is a three day summit, involving:

The Immunology of Ageing

It is clear that the immune system undergoes age-associated alterations, producing a progressive deterioration in the ability to respond to infections and to develop immunity after vaccination. This event will discuss this Immunosenescence, both within the innate and adaptive immune systems. While discussing the mechanisms that contribute to immunosenescence, there will be plenty of networking opportunities and also debate relating to potential therapies that could be employed to help the population live longer, fuller and healthier lives.

Biomarkers and Ageing

Biomarkers of ageing could help to characterise biological age and be used, not only to identify individuals at high risk of developing age-associated diseases or disabilities, but also could lead to anti-ageing therapies. This event will discuss the current research to identify and characterise biomarkers for ageing in an informal atmosphere. Abstract submissions are encouraged for both oral and poster presentations and there will be plenty of opportunity of networking with experts in the field.

*Establishing Anti-Ageing Medicines

The last three decades have shown us how plastic the ageing process can be. It is becoming apparent that, with increased knowledge, more and more of the negative consequences of ageing can now be tackled, postponed or avoided. This meeting aims to review the most up to date science about how we can positively modulate ageing and the implementation of such results to human ageing.

This talk is part of the euroscicon series.
