Please register via the main meeting ("Registration", to the left). (To help us organize the catering, please do so until Friday 18th noon.)

Aims and Topics

The meeting will be a follow-up on the 2013 (Rejuvenation Research 2013), 2011 (Rejuvenation Research 2012) and 2010 (Rejuvenation Research 2010) meetings.
The meeting is also the concluding symposium of the ROSAge project funded by the BMBF.
Notably, on Thursday 24th September, the Aging Forum will take place at the BLSW/MipTec in Basel.

Program as of July 30, 2015
