ICSA 2018 Montreal

Overview

We welcome you to discuss the latest results in the field of cellular senescence at the Research Center of the CHUM located in the Montreal downtown area. Senescent cells have become an attractive target to be exploitable for therapeutic intervention to reduce or delay aged-related diseases including atherosclerosis, idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis, osteoarthritis, osteoporosis and extend healthy lifespan. Cellular senescence is also relevant for tissue regeneration and tumor suppression and their modulation may lead to innovative anticancer treatments.

Topics to be covered during the conference include:

  1. RNA biology of senescent cells
  2. Metabolism of senescent cells
  3. Tumor suppression and cancer therapeutics
  4. Effects of senescent cells on its microenvironment
  5. Aging and anti-senescence drug discovery
