Mitochondria in Aging and Age-Related Disease
joint with Mitochondrial Biology in Heart and Skeletal Muscle
Organizer(s): Gerald S. Shadel and Holly Van Remmen
Date: January 13 - 17, 2019
Location: Keystone Resort, Keystone, CO, USA
Sponsored by Astellas Pharma Inc.
Summary of Meeting:
Aging is the greatest risk factor for most human diseases, yet the underlying reasons for this are not clear and hence remain under intense investigation. Mitochondria have long been associated with aging as the cornerstones of the “mitochondrial” and “free radical” theories of aging. However, that the role of mitochondria in aging is simply due to declines in ATP production and increased oxidative stress via reactive oxygen species production is giving way to more complex hypotheses. These are driven by the realization that mitochondria are dynamic and have multiple additional roles in cell and organismal physiology (e.g., signaling and immunity). The goal of this conference is to bring together investigators working at the interface of mitochondria and aging to begin to develop network theories of mitochondrial contributions to aging and age-related diseases that take into account both “old” and “new” functions of mitochondria. Topics covered include neurodegeneration, cancer, metabolic diseases, inflammation and mitochondrial signaling pathways. It is expected that this conference will facilitate new interactions and collaborations at the interface of aging and mitochondrial biology. This should catalyze new research toward therapies for age-related diseases based on selectively targeting mitochondrial functions and signaling pathways in specific physiological and disease contexts.
