About the EMBO-FEBS Lecture Course
Ageing is accompanied by a continuous decline in the capacity to maintain organ homeostasis and regeneration. Driven by the increasing interest in the field of ageing and regeneration as well as recent discoveries and progress in this area of research, we consider it important to bring the field of ageing-associated organ dysfunction, stem cells and regeneration to the attention of young scientists. The latter will be brought together with leaders in the field who have contributed to breakthroughs in our understanding of ageing and regeneration using different animal models. The format of this EMBO-FEBS Lecture Course, including talks, tutorials, discussions and poster presentations creates a unique opportunity to improve knowledge about ageing and regeneration as well as obtain an insight into scientific careers and foci of the research labs of the speakers and the participants. All selected poster presenters will be able to present their poster in a 2 min poster flash to all participants and speakers of the course.
The following topics will be covered:
- Ageing models
- DNA damage repair and ageing
- Key signalling pathways in regeneration and ageing
- Metabolism & ageing
- Regeneration in non-vertebrates and vertebrates
- Senescent cells in ageing and regeneration
- Stem cell ageing
About EMBO Courses and Workshops
EMBO Courses and Workshops are selected for their excellent scientific quality and timelines, provision of good networking activities for all participants and speaker gender diversity (at least 40% of speakers must be from the underrepresented gender).
Organisers are encouraged to implement measures to make the meeting environmentally more sustainable.
