Symposium "Timing Age"
On 2 and 3 November 2006, PhD students of the IMP, together with students of the Vienna Biocenter organized a scientific symposium. The meeting was devoted to "aging". World class specialists explored the topic from various angles. Their contributions covered such diverse fields as cellular and molecular aging, systems biology, diseases and therapies, as well as the use of model organisms in the study of aging. The last sessions on both days focused on ethical implications of aging research, giving rise to interesting and lively discussions. The meeting was a big success, with close to 200 participants attending, many of them from abroad.
