Cardiovascular diseases are the major cause of death in the industrial nations especially in the elderly. Therefore, it is of scientific interest which part of the complete risk for cardiovascular diseases is based on ageing in comparison with normal risk factors like smoking or hypercholesterolemia.
Thus, it is important to understand the molecular and cellular mechanisms of ageing. With this knowledge, new interventions can be developed to modify the ageing process and thereby postpone the onset of cardiovascular diseases with the goal to increase the years of healthy life – the healthspan – rather than only the lifespan.
The purpose of this meeting is (1) to discuss ageing as a modifiable risk factor of cardiovascular diseases, (2) to promote communication among the world-wide community of individuals engaged in ageing research and (3) to invite students to join this field of research.
The congress will be the 10th 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.
The symposium is co-sponsored by the Leopoldina.
The symposium addresses a professional audience and will be held in English. A conference fee will be charged. Please register until Saturday, 31. July 2021 via https://www.medizin.uni-halle.de/ageing-conference
