Aging is the largest risk factor for the development of cancer, yet the classic aging research community and cancer researchers seldom interact. The goal of this meeting will be to bring together individuals who study the systemic and local impact of aging, including accelerated aging brought on by chemotherapy with cancer researchers to share their insight and develop a better understanding of how aging impacts tumor initiation, progression, recurrence and response to therapy. By bringing these experts together, the intent of this meeting will be to create a more complete picture of the potential therapeutic landscape. The unique feature of this meeting is its breadth of experts focused on both the systemic and local aging environment and cancer, who also recognize varied paracrine interactions with heterogeneous neoplastic cells. Presentations will focus on emerging studies to enable attendees’ access to senior investigators, as well as new investigators spanning the diversity of disciplines called ‘cancer biology’ and “aging.” In addition to invited speakers, time will be allotted for short oral presentations proffered form submitted abstracts and two integrated poster sessions.
