After the great success of 2015's edition, we have announced the 2nd Meeting on the Molecular Biology of Ageing from Sunday evening till Wednesday noon, October 8-11, 2017, in Groningen, The Netherlands.
We have succeeded to gather world-leading scientists working in the diverse research areas that are relevant for understanding the biology of ageing. The Meeting started October 8th with an Opening Lecture by Professor Andrew Dillin, Thomas and Stacey Siebel (Distinguished Chair in Stem Cell Research at the Department of Molecular and Cell Biology at Berkeley).
The Program of the Meeting was organized into ten sessions covering a wide range of topics related with the process of ageing. For each session two leading scientists introduced the topic and presented their latest work. One to two additional speakers for each session were selected from submitted abstracts. Abstracts were also presented as posters in two sessions. We hope to have stimulated new ideas and approaches and foster collaborations that will facilitate community-building in the field of ageing research.
