Biogerontology for Clinicians, 16-17/2/18, St James's Hospital, Dublin

Mercer’s Institute for Successful Ageing & Trinity College Dublin proudly present this two day Biogerontology Conference which aims to give practising clinicians an understanding of:

  • the biological mechanisms that underlie ageing;
  • ageing and the immune system;
  • ageing and the cardiovascular system;
  • ageing and the brain;
  • potential therapeutic strategies that address ageing

The aim of this event is to put recent advances in biology in context within the pathology of ageing. The event will bring together leaders in ageing from academic, clinical and industrial settings with a passion for the subject which will generate meaningful collaborative, translational approaches with significant potential strategic value to service users. A deeper understanding of the biology associated with ageing related-disease offers the opportunity to develop diagnostics, therapeutics, medical devices, food for health and technology to support independent living.

Conference speakers include:
Professor Rose Anne Kenny, Director, Mercer's Institute for Successful Ageing, St James's Hospital, Dublin and Centre for Medical Gerontology, Trinity College Dublin, Ireland
Emeritus Professor Tom Kirkwood, Associate Dean for Ageing at Newcastle University, Newcastle upon Tyne, United Kingdom
Professor Neil Pendleton, Professor of Medical Gerontology, School of Biological Sciences, Division of Neuroscience and Experimental Psychology, Manchester Academic Health Science Centre, University of Manchester
