Workshop: Dietary composition, time-restricted feeding and associated metabolic reprogramming in healthspan and longevity regulation

On August 22 and 23, 2022, the Division of Aging Biology at the National Institute on Aging (NIA) will host a virtual workshop on innovative dietary regimens involving restriction or manipulation of composition of macromolecules while considering the timing of nutrient intake in promoting healthspan and longevity, with an overarching focus on the underlying molecular and cellular mechanisms. We look forward to exploring the state of the science, as well as the opportunities and challenges, in areas such as:

  • Nutrient sensing, macronutrient restriction and dietary composition manipulation in healthspan and longevity regulation
  • Interactions between circadian rhythms and dietary interventions in healthspan promotion 
  • Macronutrient manipulation in tissue homeostasis and organ function
  • Translational promises and challenges of dietary interventions to enhance human healthspan
