Ageing: Molecules to Man

British Society for Research on Ageing (BSRA) is to hold its annual scientific meeting in Brighton, July 17-18, 2008. The theme is "Ageing: Molecules to Man."

"Our meeting takes a multidisciplinary approach to one of the key problems in ageing today: the concept of frailty, says Richard Faragher, BSRA Secretary. The speakers programme combines established leaders in the fields of calorie restriction, muscle biology and cellular senescence with some of the best and brightest newcomers to ageing research.

Confirmed speakers include:

Paul Thornalley, University of Warwick (the chemistry of ageing)
Chris Moulin, University of Leeds (the ageing mind)
• Calvin Harley, Geron Corporation (replicative senescence)
David Gems, University College London (ageing in invertebrates)
Arlan Richardson, University of Texas San Antonio (rodent models of ageing)
• Steve Allen, Bournemouth (respiratory frailty and ageing)

The meeting will be held at the Hilton Brighton Metropole in a prime seafront location, in the heart of Brighton.

The meeting hopes to capture the international quality and reach of British ageing research. It is also designed to promote networking and collaboration for attendees from around the world. Certificates of attendance will be available for CPD purposes.
