1st Scientific Meeting of the Canadian Translational Geroscience Network


The Canadian Translational Geroscience Network is thrilled to present its inaugural scientific meeting, an event aimed at fostering dynamic exchanges among academics, industry stakeholders, healthcare professionals, and individuals interested in promoting longevity and healthy aging. This meeting will embrace a translational approach, bridging laboratory research with practical applications in clinical and community settings.

The primary objective of this event is to facilitate stimulating discussions around validated or ongoing tools and strategies designed to extend the healthspan and quality of life for older adults. Additionally, we aim to deepen our understanding of the mechanisms of aging from various perspectives: biological, clinical, and social.

By promoting dialogue and collaboration across diverse areas of expertise, this meeting aims to serve as a catalyst for advancing knowledge and practices in the field of translational geroscience in Canada.

Travel grants will be available to students and early career investigators. To apply for a travel grant, please submit a short bio (maximum of 200 words) and an abstract before June 7th, 2024, by completing the abstract submission section.
