A meeting devoted to clinical research in aging. This is mainstream geriatrics, with a twist: the organizers have a higher-than-usual interest in work related to translating basic biogerontological findings into the clinic.

The UCSD Clinical Investigation Institute (CII) and Nature Medicine invite you to attend the third annual Frontiers of Clinical Investigation Symposium, Aging 2007: Bench to Bedside to be held October 18-20, 2007 in La Jolla, California. The theme for this year’s symposium explores innovative approaches to bridge laboratory investigation to clinical research in aging. The topic stands at the crossroads of many disciplines, including endocrinology and cardiology as well as neurodegenerative and musculoskeletal diseases. Multi-disciplinary sessions will include basic, translational, and clinical presentations on cutting edge research to provide an integrated approach to understanding the science of healthy aging. This symposium will provide unique insights and tools for optimizing and streamlining clinical investigation from discovery to drug development.

Abstract submission deadline is August 27th; registration gets costlier after September 16th.
