Epigenetics: Playing with the Game of Life

Kongress / Symposium
13. September 2019 - 15. September 2019
Konzerthalle Ulrichskirche, Halle (Saale) - Christian-Wolff-Straße 2, 06108 Halle (Saale)
0345 / 557-26 47

Dear colleagues,
Ageing is an unavoidable outcome of life, characterized by progressive decline in function and increased risk of mortality. In model systems, we have learned a great deal about the mechanisms of ageing and are able to modify health as well as lifespan by genetic, pharmacological or lifestyle interventions. Accumulating evidence links ageing to epigenetic alterations with a high impact of the environment or the nutrition on health-span and diseases. Given the reversible nature of epigenetic mechanisms, these pathways provide promising avenues for therapeutics against age-related decline and disease. It will be the goal in the future to translate such results into humans.

The purpose of this meeting is (1) to discuss ageing as a modifiable risk factor of diseases, (2) to promote greater communication among the world-wide community of individuals engaged in ageing research and (3) to invite young students to join this field of research.

The congress will be the 9th international meeting on ageing in Halle (Saale) and will accompany the development of a focus on ageing research in Central-Germany. It will comprise invited talks and poster sessions. There will be no concurrent sessions.

We are looking forward to welcoming you to Halle (Saale) for a most exciting and enjoyable meeting.

Andreas Simm
