Description

Mercer’s Institute for Successful Ageing & Trinity College Dublin proudly present this one day Biogerontology conference following the success of last year's event.

Do you want to learn more about:
How we age?
What causes ageing?
What happens to our body and mind when we age?


Biogerontology is the branch of gerontology concerned with the biological processes involved in ageing.

This conference will focus on the biological mechanisms that underlie ageing and the consequences of ageing on the biology of the major systems of the body. These talks will summarise what is currently known around each aspect of ageing and identify the major outlying challenges for healthcare professionals working with older people.

The conference is divided into 3 sessions:

How old are you? This session includes information on why we age, the epigenetic clock & allostatic load and the ageing brain

Frailty/ Falls/ Delirium: This session includes talks on the biology of geriatric syndromes and how to measure frailty

The cardiovascular system: this session looks at the ageing in the vascular system, vascular inflammageing and vascular brain ageing
