CECAD Mini-symposium “Epigenetics and metabolism in ageing and age-related diseases”

September 18, 2017

10:00 a.m. - 6:00 p.m.
MPI for Biology of Ageing in Cologne - Joseph-Stelzmann-Str. 9b - 50931 Cologne

- Organized by Alvaro Rada-Iglesias and Peter Tessarz -

The symposium will be dedicated to an emerging topic – the relationship of metabolism with epigenetics and their interactions with common genetic variation in the context of ageing and age-related diseases. Although the connections between metabolism, epigenetics, genetic variation and ageing are becoming more prevalent, the disciplines are not yet well connected.

Therefore, the mini-symposium will bring together a group of people working on different aspects of this theme and will thus provide a platform to discuss future developments and potential collaborations.
