BSRA ASM 2021: Joint BSRA and Biochemical Society Scientific Meeting

6th to 8th September 2021

Metabolism of Ageing Abstracts

Abstract deadline: Monday 26 July 2021

Earlybird registration deadline: Monday 26 July 2021

Registration is now open!

Estimates suggest that globally there will be over 2.1 billion people aged over 60 by 2050. Increased age is the major risk factor for multiple diseases including cancer, diabetes, cardiovascular disease and neurodegeneration. New strategies to help ensure improved heath in older people are therefore urgently needed.

Research has shown that common underlying biological process, such as nutrient signalling and cellular metabolism, influence the ageing process to drive multiple age-related pathologies; these biological mechanisms of ageing have therefore emerged as viable therapeutic targets for manipulating ageing itself to treat age-related diseases.

This conference is jointly organized with the Biochemical Society and will bring together those working on cellular metabolism with those developing intervention to improve healthy ageing, providing an interdisciplinary forum for discussion on how to translate fundamental scientific finding to clinical strategies that target ageing and its associated diseases. This meeting is aimed at researchers in a range of disciplines including biochemistry, biology and medicine.

Online Conference

This event will be hosted entirely online. Registered delegates will be given access to an online event space, in which they can view the presentations, look at digital posters and access networking channels.

Presentations from invited speakers and elevated from abstracts will be live streamed, with the audience submitting their questions via text. Talks will also be recorded, and delegates given OnDemand access to these talks for a limited time, should they have missed anything or want to revisit content.

Posters will be presented in a digital gallery in both PDF and video format. Each poster will be viewable for the duration of the conference and OnDemand period. Scroll down for further information about posters at this meeting.

A networking space will allow for all delegates to talk via text or join video calls with one another.
