Listen to an audio version of this announcement

BUFFALO, NY- May 24, 2022 – Aging (Aging-US) is sponsoring the Systems Aging Gordon Research Conference, “Systemic Processes, Omics Approaches and Biomarkers in Aging,” from May 29 to June 3, 2022, at the Grand Summit Hotel at Sunday River in Newry, Maine, USA.

This year, the Chair and Vice Chair of the conference are Aging Editorial Board members Vadim N. Gladyshev, Professor of Medicine at Harvard Medical School and Director of Redox Medicine at Brigham and Women’s Hospital, and Steve Horvath, Professor of Human Genetics and Biostatistics at the University of California, Los Angeles. Dr. Gladyshev is known for his characterization of the human selenoproteome. He was also elected as a member of the U. S. National Academy of Sciences in 2021. Dr. Horvath is a world-renowned researcher, geneticist and biostatistician. Recently, Aging devoted a research collection to Dr. Horvath’s profound contributions in epigenetics and DNA methylation research. Read Aging’s Special Collection on Steve Horvath Publications.

Both Drs. Gladyshev and Horvath will be speaking and leading discussions at this meeting. In addition, a number of prestigious researchers from renowned institutions will be presenting at this conference. Presenters who are also members of Aging’s Editorial Board include Cynthia Kenyon, Manuel Serrano, Alex Zhavoronkov, and Vera Gorbunova. 

Over the course of the six-day Systems Aging Gordon Research Conference, presentations will cover many topics, including delaying aging, aging clocks, clinical biomarkers, advances in systemic rejuvenation, comparative and multi-omics approaches, applications of machine learning and artificial intelligence, the current understanding of the molecular basis of aging, and longevity interventions in model organisms. The organizers of the conference hope this meeting will facilitate deep discussions and the free exchange of ideas between not only established researchers but also junior scientists. 

“The 2022 Systems Aging GRC will set the stage for subsequent meetings and future development of this field, with the idea to ultimately help delay and reverse aging and age-related pathology.” (Source: 2022 Systems Aging GRC)

About Aging-US:

Launched in 2009, Aging (Aging-US) publishes papers of general interest and biological significance in all fields of aging research and age-related diseases, including cancer—and now, with a special focus on COVID-19 vulnerability as an age-dependent syndrome. Topics in Aging go beyond traditional gerontology, including, but not limited to, cellular and molecular biology, human age-related diseases, pathology in model organisms, signal transduction pathways (e.g., p53, sirtuins, and PI-3K/AKT/mTOR, among others), and approaches to modulating these signaling pathways.
