As organisms age, change over time occurs as a layered process, from molecular modifications to shifts in tissue homeostasis, ultimately leading to systemic transformations. Alterations in metabolism are found throughout the hierarchy of change and can be integral to the relationship between aging and disease as well as to the impact of aging on physiological [...]
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 [...]
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 [...]
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 [...]
