Meeting the Challenge of Healthy Ageing in the 21st Century

This is the FIRST live streamed only, three day professional conference on Ageing. We have gathered together invited speakers from around the world, who you might not otherwise have access to.
A forum to discuss the biology of ageing and age-related diseases, plus strategies to promote improved health and quality of life in older people.
Event Description: While the world’s population continues to live for longer, the time spent in good health is not always keeping pace. This not only has significant consequences for quality of life in old age, but also places a substantial economic burden on health and social care provision. This multi-disciplinary meeting will bring together scientists and healthcare professionals to discuss recent advances in the understanding of the processes responsible for and associated with ageing, and new approaches to improve the health and quality of life of the ageing population.

We encourage questions, discussion and debate and have a relaxed atmosphere which generates maximum interaction online.

After registration you will be connected to an online networking site where you will be able to have discussions with all participants of this event, before, during and after the meeting.
Who Should Attend: Those with an academic or professional interest in ageing and its research; including research scientists, clinicians, pharmacologists, and those who work in research and development of pharmaceuticals and related technology.
