invite you cordially to the
RoSyBA: Rostock Symposium on Systems Biology and Bioinformatics in Ageing Research
15th-17th September 2011
The workshop is kindly sponsored by the BMBF, the SENS Foundation, Sanofi-Aventis and by the Department of
Medicine and the Department of Aging Science and Humanities (Interdisz. Fakultät), Univ. Rostock.
Registration is still possible on site. Fees: 300Ř for Academia/Industry, 200Ř for Graduate Student/Trainee.
Day Tickets: Thu: 50%, Fri: 70%, Sat: 30% of the fee as above.
Aims and Topics
In an “ageing society”, healthspan extension is most important. As in 2010 (Rejuvenation Res. 13:763-7), talks in this meeting demonstrate that ageing is a complex process, where in-silico work can be most useful to gain insight, and to find interventions. Specific topics of this year’s meeting are “Cancer and Ageing”, and a focus on work funded by the German ministry (BMBF).
