Fourteenth International Symposium on Neurobiology and Neuroendocrinology of Aging
will be held July 15–20, 2018 in
The symposium is part of a biennial series that started 1992
(programs of previous Symposia).
It will be held in a format similar to the Gordon Conferences, with
morning and evening sessions Monday–Thursday.
Afternoons will be free for informal, individual discussions
or simply to enjoy the beautiful surroundings of Bregenz
(glimpses of which are sprinkled throughout this website).
This year, the symposium will cooperate with the research training
group ProMoAge — Posttranslational Proteinmodifications
as a cause of aging (www.promoage.de).
There will be a special joint session on this topic.
In 2010 a Workshop with an introduction to the field was added as a new feature
to the Symposium.
The Workshop starts on Sunday afternoon (2 p.m.)
with an introduction to the field that will include key advance information from the
lectures in order to make them more understandable to participants from diverse backgrounds,
and put them into perspective from the standpoint of current approaches to aging research.
All registered participants will receive the 2018
Proceedings as part of their registration fee.
Dr. Norman Orentreich Award for Young Investigators in Aging
in the amount of US$1,000 for professional development of
a trainee will be presented by the Orentreich Foundation for the
Advancement of Science during the 2018 Symposium.
The goal of the award is to inspire young investigators to
continue aging research as well as to acknowledge the potential
of their work. One trainee will be selected from the short talks
at the Symposium. The awardee will also provide an update
on his/her research as part of the bi-annual OFAS symposium in 2019.
Two Sable Systems Early Career Investigator Awards
will be provided for poster presentations during the conference.
These awards are sponsored by Sable Systems and will be given to
trainees based upon presentation of their aging related research.
The scientific program of the Symposium ends on Thursday (July 19) at
