Description This work is ongoing. The aim is to integrate large datasets to develop a network model of the impact of caloric restriction.
Exploitation Route Once the model is developed it will be valuable to evaluate the efficacy of CR mimetic pharmaceuticals
Sectors Healthcare,Pharmaceuticals and Medical Biotechnology

Results and Impact This conference addresses factors that may contribute to healthier lifestyles and outcomes, thereby delaying the onset of age-associated diseases and extending longevity. The focus is to highlight cutting-edge advances in aging research, novel technologies and potential therapeutic interventions. The conference will focus on topics not covered at previous Keystone Symposia meetings on aging biology and will specifically examine both the fundamental mechanisms involved in the aging process as well as interventions and potential therapeutics that may delay aging and the onset of age-associated diseases to forge a deeper understanding of the complex, multifactorial aging process. The discussions of novel interventions and/or therapeutics that appear to slow aging processes will, in turn, guide the field toward facilitating extended periods of good health and prolonging lifespan in humans
