The Biology of Aging GRC is a premier, international scientific conference focused on advancing the frontiers of science through the presentation of cutting-edge and unpublished research, prioritizing time for discussion after each talk and fostering informal interactions among scientists of all career stages. The conference program includes a diverse range of speakers and discussion leaders from institutions and organizations worldwide, concentrating on the latest developments in the field. The conference is five days long and held in a remote location to increase the sense of camaraderie and create scientific communities, with lasting collaborations and friendships. In addition to premier talks, the conference has designated time for poster sessions from individuals of all career stages, and afternoon free time and communal meals allow for informal networking opportunities with leaders in the field.
Aging research over the past decades has made great strides to identify key hallmarks of aging at an increasingly detailed molecular and cellular resolution. These advances have led to the growing recognition that aging is malleable and subject to interventions not just at the cellular level or in invertebrates but possibly in a range of vertebrates and even humans. With its overarching theme “Evolving concepts of organismal aging”, the 2023 "Biology of Aging" Gordon Research Conference will highlight diversity in aging research, incorporating cutting edge experimental approaches, discoveries, and will span model organisms to humans.
The conference chair is currently developing their preliminary program, which will include 9 sessions and the names of the invited speakers and discussion leaders for each of these sessions. Please check back regularly for updates to this information.
