Dr Helen NilssonThis event will look at current scientific research and thinking regarding the ageing process.  

With discussions ranging from discovery of biomarkers and assay
development to the immunology of ageing,
this event promises to be packed with discussion and debate
and is an ideal opportunity to discover what is new in the field.

This event  has CPD accreditation

The Deadline for abstract submissions for oral presentation is Nov 10th 2014
Abstracts for poster presentation only can be submitted up to two weeks before the event
