2nd Interventions in Aging Conference
A plethora of genetic, dietary and pharmacological interventions can extend healthy lifespan in laboratory animals, and can delay or ameliorate diverse aging-related diseases. Many of the signalling pathways involved are evolutionarily conserved, and are starting to be implicated in human aging. This raises the intriguing possibility of performing preventative medicine against the chronic diseases of our time by targeting the main risk factor for all of them, namely aging. Two important current challenges in the field are (1) to understand the downstream pathways by which longevity interventions combat age-related loss of function and pathology, and (2) to translate the findings into the extension of human healthspan.
2017 L’oreal USA For Women In Science Program

Hanna H. Gray Fellows Program The program will recruit and retain early career scientists who are from groups underrepresented in the life sciences and who have the potential to become leaders in academic research. The competition is open to basic science researchers and physician-scientists in all biomedical and life science disciplines including plant biology, evolutionary biology, biophysics, chemical biology, biomedical engineering, and computational biology. Fellows will have freedom to change their research focus and follow their own curiosity during the duration of the award. Deadline: February 15, 2017
