- BSRA 66th Annual Meeting Programme Outline (last modified: 12 April 2016)
The British Society for Research on Ageing (BSRA) is a research charity and academic society that promotes and funds research into the causes and effects of ageing. Members are primarily UK-based researchers studying the biology of ageing using a wide range of disciplines.
The conference is supported by the BBSRC
Participants are encouraged to submit abstracts for the interactive poster sessions.
The best abstracts will be selected for oral presentations.
- Evolution and ecology of ageing: How evolution and ecology shed light on how ageing works
- Model systems and experimental evolution: What the study of model organisms tell us
- The molecular mechanisms of ageing: Molecular mechanisms of ageing and how they have evolved
