The Ageing Cell Conference 2017

27 Mar 28 Mar 2017

The Ageing Cell Conference will bring together an international community of researchers from the fields of immunology, genetics, epigenetics & signalling to discuss ageing at the cellular level.

The conference sessions will include:

The ageing stem cell – how stem cell development, proliferation and function changes with age
The ageing immune system – how composition and function change with age
Signalling and the ageing cell – signalling pathways that control metabolism and cellular fitness
Epigenetics of the ageing cell – exploring changes to the epigenome during ageing
For the full programme, information on how to register, accommodation, travel, transport and childcare options, please visit the conference web pages.
