Jena Aging Meeting 2020

September 17 - September 19

Jena Agin Meeting 2020 - Aging Project UniUPO

Aging is a major risk factor for the development of organ dysfunction and disease. Although under debate, there exists a strong association between decline in stem cell function, possibly impinging on the selection of mutant stem cells, impairments in tissue maintenance and disease development during aging. The JAM will discuss basic concepts and therapeutic targets on the causes and consequences of stem cells during organism aging.

Principal themes and objectives of the meeting

The JAM fosters interaction of researchers engaged in the study of basic principles of stem cell and tissue maintenance in aging. The meeting will focus on basic molecular and genetic processes that affect genetic and epigenetic stability, protein homeostasis and metabolic processes – thereby impairing the functionality and self-renewal of stem cells and organ maintenance.

The main aim of the JAM is to increase our understanding of organism aging.
