Longitudinal Studies conference
April 20 @ 1:00 pm - April 22 @ 2:00 pm
Longitudinal studies are ideal tools for studying many things including age-related functional changes, and the development and progression of chronic diseases. This conference will bring together scientists working on studies in childhood, adult and late life to identify novel biomarkers of functional decline and development of disease susceptibility, and to understand the lifetime drivers and underlying pathways of these processes.
The programme will showcase new findings, methods and technologies, and translational opportunities within and across cohort studies in high, middle and low income countries. This year’s meeting will explore approaches to monitor trends in population health and ageing, focussing on apparent peak health, including gender differences, as well as frailty.
The meeting is aimed at population scientists in epidemiology, biomedicine and the social sciences, involved in longitudinal research, longitudinal studies, genome biology, dynamic measures of physiology and other relevant fields.
