4th Interventions in Aging - Virtual Conference | 19 - 21 October 2021 | Time Zone: London, UK

A plethora of genetic, dietary, and pharmacological interventions can extend healthy lifespan in laboratory animals and can delay or ameliorate diverse aging-related diseases. Mechanisms of aging are conserved in evolution, and discoveries made in animals are informing our understanding of human aging.

Key Sessions

  • Mitochondrial quality control and aging
  • Autophagy and proteostasis
  • Regenerative interventions and cellular reprogramming
  • Human ageing: biomarkers and cell senescence
