Lecture: Molecular Frontiers of Ageing

2. maj 2024

Please join our lecture on aging through a molecular perspective where we present 3 speakers working on some of the basic molecular and cellular processes, known to play an important role in the cellular ageing process. They will share recent data and engage in a discussion on the major challenges and emerging directions within this fascinating research field.

Ageing is a major risk factor for diseases such as cardiometabolic disorders, cancer, and neurodegenerative disorders, and as the human population ages, the burden of age-related diseases increases. Understanding the molecular intricacies of ageing informs disease prevention, personalized medicine, and strategies for healthier aging – all of which has significant social and economic implications.

Recently, scientists have made tremendous progress in understanding the molecular mechanisms of ageing, which involve a complex interplay between genetic mutations and cellular processes such as mitochondrial function. Yet, there is still much to uncover.

At the Science Cluster Lecture “Molecular Frontiers of Ageing” on May 2, the Novo Nordisk Foundation has invited 3 speakers working on some of the basic molecular and cellular processes, known to play an important role in the cellular ageing process. They will share recent data and engage in a discussion on the major challenges and emerging directions within this fascinating research field.

FAQ

What is Science Cluster Lectures?

The Science Cluster Lectures is a series of open lectures for all researchers and others interested in bioscience, biotechnology and health. Every 4 weeks, on Thursday evenings, you are invited for lectures on themes with a general interest for the Novo Nordisk Foundation Research Centers and bioscience researchers in general. Often there will be a cross-disciplinary focus.

Will it be possible to attend physically and virtually?

This will be a hybrid lecture with the possibility of attending both virtually and physically. Please note that we have a limited capacity for how many we allow to participate physically, and seats are allocated on a first come, first served basis.
