Workshop: Heterogeneity and successful aging

The Division of Aging Biology (DAB) at NIA hosted a virtual workshop on May 8-9, 2023, to discuss current and new approaches to investigate successful aging, including experimental and statistical methods and models. The main objectives of this workshop were to:

  1. Gather background information on heterogeneity in aging study cohorts;
  2. Explore strategies to investigate phenotypes that are associated/predictive of successful or unsuccessful aging and prolonged healthy lifespan;
  3. Identify the challenges and opportunities posed by heterogeneity in aging study cohorts;
  4. Discuss how heterogeneity in study cohorts can be harnessed to understand the factors that determine successful aging, prolonged health, organ/tissue integrity and functionality (lifespan versus healthspan).
