The Dutch Society for Research on Ageing (DuSRA)

De Nederlandse Vereniging voor Verouderingsonderzoek

De DuSRA stimuleert de samenwerking tussen basaal en klinisch onderzoek

De laatste 10 jaar vindt onderzoek naar veroudering plaats op een breed scala aan onderzoeksgebieden (cellulaire, systemische, genomische, lifestyle). Hoewel de levensverwachting steeds verder is toegenomen, bestaan er grote verschillen tussen individuen in ziekterisico, leeftijd van aanvang en voortgang van functieverlies.

De DuSRA wil fundamentele en translationele studies van veroudering  integreren. Zij stimuleert biomedisch verouderingsonderzoek en de integratie daarvan bij mens en diermodel, en bevordert de samenwerking tussen basaal en klinisch onderzoek.

De vereniging beoogt:

  • onderzoek naar de oorzaken en gevolgen van veroudering te bevorderen;
  • een forum te bieden voor bespreking van onderzoeksideeën en nieuwe ontwikkelingen op het gebied van veroudering;
  • aanspreekpunt te zijn voor advies betreffende medische en maatschappelijke vragen betreffende veroudering.

Longevity mainly ascribed to an extremely long-lived mother

For many years, scientists in Leiden have been monitoring 421 exceptional families with several members who have lived way beyond the age of 90. A new analysis of these extremely long-lived persons, their siblings, and parents now shows that longevity in these families is passed on mainly through the mother. The researchers present their results in the scientific journal The Journal of Gerontology: Biological Sciences. (press [...]

Scientific Conference – Longitudinal Studies – Genome Campus Hinxton

30 May-1 June 2018 - Wellcome Genome Campus, Hinxton, UK Longitudinal studies are ideal tools for studying age-related functional changes, and the development and progression of chronic diseases. This conference will bring together scientists working on studies in childhood, adult and late life to identify novel biomarkers of functional decline and development of disease susceptibility, and to understand the lifetime drivers and underlying pathways [...]

News from the board – Public Private Partnership (PPPs)

One of the activities for 2018 that DuSRA is trying to launch,  is to set up a public private partnership in the field of ageing. The board submitted an initial concept to ZonMW to get the oppurtunity to be selected in the proposition of ZonMW and the Topsectors. The initiative called VOILA: Vitality Oriented Innovations for the Lifecourse of the Ageing Society, has indeed been [...]

QUOTES

“The aim of medicine is to prevent disease and prolong life, the ideal of medicine is to eliminate the need of a physician.” (William James Mayo)

“Rather than tackling cancer, or dementia, or cardiovascular disease, we should focus on slowing or reversing the single most prominent risk factor associated with all those diseases: AGE.” (Andrzej Bartke, 2016)

“The foundation of the entire health problem is that we no longer challenge our body. If you want to stay healthy, you have to challenge your body. The metabolism should continuously be triggered……..” (Patrick Schrauwen, 2016).
