Workshop: Advances in aging, immunity, and chronic inflammatory disease
On May 9-10, 2023, the National Institute on Aging (NIA), the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), and the National Institute of Dental and Craniofacial Research (NIDCR) will co-host an in-person workshop on Advances in Aging, Immunity, and Chronic Inflammatory Diseases. The workshop, which will take place in advance of the American Association of Immunologists (AAI) annual meeting, will aim to gather new knowledge about the state of the science with regard to immunosenescence, aging, and their impact on chronic disease development. Specifically, the workshop may cover the following topics:
- New research on immune function during aging and improved methods to define immunological states.
- Advances in single cell technologies that allow for better interrogation of immune cell populations.
- Research on the mechanisms involved in accelerated development of immune aging and chronic disease.
