Ageing 2016: 9th – 11th February


This annual international summit will look at many facets of research and processes that are involved in ageing and senescence.  

With discussions ranging from discovery of biomarkers and assay development to immunology, this event promises to be packed with discussion and debate and is an ideal opportunity to discover what is new in the field. With an all round view of ageing, from diagnostics to therapy, this event will be multi-disciplinary.

A late registration fee applies after December 20th 2015
This event is suited to anyone with an academic or professional interest in Ageing and its research; including researchers, senior scientists, postgraduate students, clinicians, pharmacologists, and those who work in research and development of pharmaceuticals and related technology.
This event has an open abstract session.  
Abstracts can be submitted on any subject related to Ageing
The Deadline for abstract submissions for oral presentation is November 10th 2015
Abstracts for poster presentation only can be submitted up to two weeks before the event
You can download the instructions for authors at

This event has CPD accreditation
