Home Conference APRU Population Aging Conference 2021


The 11th APRU Aging Population Virtual Conference seeks to encourage research on a number of broad themes that not only survive with diminished functions related to aging but new ways to help the elderly develop and overcome limitations and are associated with transitions that change the view of aging from “survive” to “develop”.

One of the themes is “Successful Aging”; what behaviours, activities and choices made throughout the life cycle produce a healthier and more active elderly population. This approach requires life and related developed into “life extension”. Then we can understand the biology of aging and how gene therapy or drugs can be carried out in creating a growing centenarian cohort. Research on telomeres in length, intestinal bacteria, and “aging clock”.
