SAVE THE DATE: 3rd Australian Biology of Ageing Conference

Event date: 
25 June 2018 - 10:00am to 26 June 2018 - 12:00pm
Location: 
THE UNIVERSITY OF QUEENSLAND
Cost: 
$100, Special Student price $50
Booking deadline: 
In 2018, the UQ Centre in Stem Cell Ageing and Regenerative Engineering (UQ-StemCARE) with our partners The University of Sydney, UNSW Sydney and Monash University will be hosting the 3rd Australian Biology of Ageing Conference.

Our goal is to engineer clinically translatable solutions for increasing health span and healthy ageing. This conference will provide a platform for lively exchange between scientists to forge links between basic research and clinical translation and establish a network globally for ageing research and regenerative medicine.

The conference will be held from the 25th - 26th of June at The University of Queensland and will feature keynote lectures from Professor Judith CampisiProfessor Thomas Rando and Professor Hartmut Geiger.

Please visit www.ageingbiologyaustralia.org for event details, registration and program updates. If you have any questions about the conference please feel free to contact us

We look forward to seeing you at the symposium. 

Sincerely, 

Prof. Ernst Wolvetang | Co-Director UQ-StemCARE | AIBN | UQ

Professor Judith Campisi has received international recognition for her 
contributions to understanding why age is the largest single risk factor for developing a panoply of diseases ranging from neurodegeneration to cancer. Her highly 
acclaimed research integrates the genetic, environmental and evolutionary forces 
that result in aging and age related diseases, and identifies pathways that can be 
modified to mitigate basic aging processes.

Professor Thomas Rando's research on aging has demonstrated that it is possible to identify biochemical stimuli that can induce stem cells in old tissues to repair injuries as effectively as in young tissues, and this work has broad implications for the fields of regenerative medicine and stem cell transplantation. In 2016, Tom has been elected to the National Academy of Medicine, one of the highest honors in the fields of health and medicine recognizing individuals who have demonstrated outstanding professional achievement and commitment to service. 

Professor Hartmut Geiger is a renowned stem cell researcher and spokesperson ofthe new German Research Training Group into "Cellular and Molecular Mechanisms of Ageing”. He leads innovative research projects focussing on how adult stem cells 
are regulated in health, disease and ageing and how to translate their findings into 
the clinic where adult stem cells are a powerful source in tissue regeneration as well as in cancer.
