FLI_Workshop - Systems Biology of Ageing

Workshop - Systems Biology of Ageing
Jena, Germany September 8-9, 2014

The continuing increase in life expectancy poses demanding challenges to society in general and public health systems in particular. Promotion of health in old age requires intensive research efforts into ageing processes and age-related diseases. It is now being increasingly recognised that a reductionist approach ascribing ageing phenomena to single causes is inadequate to explain all functional changes associated with ageing. Therefore strategies suited to study complex stochastic systems are required.

In recent years, a multidisciplinary approach known as systems biology has emerged that analyses the interactions between the components of biological systems in a systems-wide way. We expect that age research will greatly benefit from such a systems biology perspective.

The workshop will bring together bench scientists and modellers interested in systems biology of ageing.

We invite researchers to present new original research adopting systems biology approaches to ageing phenomena including age-related diseases as oral and poster contributions. Submissions will be accepted electronically starting in April 2014. The submission deadline is July 31, 2014.

The workshop is organized by the Jena Centre for Systems Biology of Ageing - JenAge and supported by the Leibniz Institute for Age Research, Fritz Lipmann Institute - FLI.
