Molecular Basis of Aging and Disease

We are pleased to announce the Cold Spring Harbor Asia on Molecular Basis of Aging and Disease, which will be held at the Suzhou Dushu Lake Conference Center in Suzhou, China, located approximately 60 miles west of Shanghai. The conference will begin at 7:00pm on the evening of Monday September 9, and will conclude after lunch on Friday September 13, 2013.

Our conference targets basic biomedical research on aging relevant to understanding lifespan development processes and age-related diseases and disabilities. The conference will include eight oral sessions and one poster session. Many talks will be selected from the openly submitted abstracts on the basis of scientific merit and relevance. Social events throughout the conference provide ample opportunity for informal interactions.


Major Topics:
1. Comparative biology of aging
2. Cellular endpoints
3. Systems aging
4. Developmental and environmental interactions
5. Metabolism
6. DNA damage and repair
7. Molecular and cellular interventions
