While the biology of aging is still a relatively new field, this GRC has become the premier forum for unpublished data presentation and discussions, resulting in a meeting where one can view exciting current science and also see the future directions of the field. Applications for this meeting must be submitted by June 4, 2023.

The meeting will explore the regulation and function of genes and processes that are now known or suspected to control cellular and/or organismic aging. Abstract Deadline: July 8, 2022
Disruption of immune cell functions and responses plays a significant role in the etiology of many aging-related diseases. Recent advances in genomic technologies enable precise description of molecular and cellular changes associated with aging in human cells as well as in model organisms, including the mouse. However, uncovering the functional and clinical significance of these genomic and cellular changes is a significant computational challenge. This 2-day meeting brings together leading scientists from across disciplines (immunology, aging, genomics, and computational biology) with shared interests in using systems immunology to understand aging and aging-related diseases. This year will focus on “The Immune Resilience of Aging”.
Systems Immunology in Aging and Complex Diseases will take place both in-person at the Jackson Laboratory and virtually.
The conference's main themes are: 1) Cutting-edge questions in the ﬁelds of chromatin, transcription, and epigenetics, as they apply to aging; 2) New frontiers, including the exciting emerging ﬁeld of three-dimensional chromatin structure and RNA epigenomics; 3) Transformative epigenomic technologies at the single cell and single molecule levels; 4) How epigenomic modiﬁcations can be used to build “aging clocks;” 5) “Rejuvenation by epigenetic reprogramming” as a strategy to counter aging and age-related diseases. Abstract Deadline: August 1, 2022. Registration Closing Deadline: September 7, 2022
The 2022 C. elegans “Topics” Meeting “Metabolism, Aging, Pathogenesis, and Stress” (MAPS 2022), on campus at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, Memorial Union will host researchers studying fundamental questions regarding increasing health-span and reducing aging-associated decline.
This will be the first ever international meeting dedicated entirely to the mechanisms of reproductive aging, with a goal to showcase research and stimulate collaborations that bridge the disciplines of reproductive biology and aging research to help define new paradigms to accelerate research in this area of biology. Abstract deadline: April 25, 2022. Registration closing deadline: June 1, 2022.
Development and aging are seemingly opposing processes that define how cells, tissues and organs assemble and maintain their optimal functions over the entire lifespan of an organism. Recent advances support the notion that a wide range of fundamental biological processes early in life also affects organismal survival at old age. The proposed workshop aims to deepen our understanding on how developmental mechanisms are functionally linked to longevity assurance pathways promoting health-span or to age-related diseases. Registration and abstract submission deadline: April 5, 2022

The Simons Foundation's Collaboration on Plasticity and the Aging Brain (SCPAB) is hosting a new event, and we’d love to see you there. This event is open to neuroscience postdocs and PhD students in the NY and NJ areas interested in cognitive aging (sorry, no PIs). Each meeting will feature a talk from a student or postdoc in the cognitive aging field followed by dinner, drinks, and discussion.
Speaker: Rachel Kaletsky, Research Scholar, Murphy Laboratory at Princeton University
Title: Conserved molecular mechanisms of cognitive aging: From Worms to Humans
