Aging Biology: Understanding Aging on a Molecular Level

May 10, 2017: Stress response and genome integrity.
May 11, 2017: Cell senescence and aging process of tissues.
May 12, 2017: Aging-related diseases.

Why do we age? This question draws more and more attention in the current super-aging society. In this symposium, we aim at deepening our understanding of aging mechanisms at the molecular, cellular and organismal levels. Understanding the aging mechanisms is an essential platform for tackling aging-related diseases such as cancer and Alzheimer’s disease.
