The 4th Australian Biology of Ageing Conference (ABAC) 2019 will be combined with the National Institutes of Health (NIH) GeroScience Meetings. This year’s conference will aim to address how genetic, dietary and pharmacological interventions impact the ageing process. The focus is to highlight new technologies, cutting-edge advances and novel interventions to delay age-related disease and extend health span and lifespan.
This meeting will emphasise the wide range of research conducted in the ageing field, spanning basic biological mechanisms to preclinical and translational research. Featuring a combination of world leaders, emerging leaders and early-career scientists, this meeting will forge a deeper understanding of the underlying causes of ageing, which will ultimately drive future research directions that will extend health span and lifespan in humans.
