Invitation from the President

Dear Colleagues,

On behalf of the Organizing Committee, I am delighted to invite all investigators in aging and age-related fields to join us in a special celebration of 50 years of research in aging biology and geroscience at the 2022 American Aging Association (AGE) Annual Meeting which will take place on May 17-20 in San Antonio as a fully integrated hybrid (in person-virtual) event.  

At the occasion of the Association’s 50th anniversary, the 2022 AGE Meeting will feature speakers and organizations representing areas of major advance in aging and age-associated disease that made recent highly impactful contributions and have helped the field move forward by leaps in the last transformative decades.

Abstracts

Abstracts may be submitted on any subject related to the general area of aging to be considered for poster presentation or oral presentation. PRESENTING AUTHORS MUST SUBMIT THEIR ABSTRACT USING THEIR OWN LOG IN (e.g. Advisors may not submit an abstract for a student under the advisor's account). More than one abstract may be submitted by each author.

Abstracts should be no longer than 2,500 characters including title, authors, affiliations and spaces  and prepared as a single paragraph, single-spaced. Abstracts should NOT contain photos, tables or references. Please include any funding acknowledgements.

Abstracts should be submitted by February 28, 2022 (midnight EST). Late abstracts will be considered for poster sessions only until March 14, 2022.
The deadline to submit an abstract has passed. 

Poster Information

IN-PERSON Poster Boards are 4' wide x 8' tall:  THESE boards are TALL, not wide.  Print your poster VERTICALLY. For the in-person poster sessions, the optimal printing size is 4' wide x 5' tall to show the details of your research at eye level on the boards.

For poster dimensions for upload to the virtual platform, please refer to the email entitled "Time to set up your Poster at AGE" sent through the meeting app, Whova.  If you did not receive or cannot find your instruction email, please let us know and we will send it to you.

Keynote Speaker

Coleen Murphy, Ph.D., Princeton University

Talk Title:  Using C. elegans to study human age-related decline

Coleen T. Murphy is a Professor of Genomics and Molecular Biology at Princeton University. She graduated from the University of Houston with a B.S. in Biochemistry and Biophysics, then earned her doctorate in Biochemistry at Stanford University, studying the structure-function determinants of pre-steady state kinetics and motility of the motor protein myosin. During her postdoctoral work at UCSF with Cynthia Kenyon, Dr. Murphy built C. elegans microarrays and used them to identify the set of genes downstream of the insulin signaling/FOXO longevity pathway. This work revealed that insulin signaling coordinates the expression of a vast array of downstream cellular processes, including stress response, proteostasis, metabolism, immunity, autophagy, and intercellular signaling, to extend cellular and organismal maintenance with age.  

In her own lab, Dr. Murphy’s team has developed C. elegans models of human “quality of life” aging phenotypes, including cognitive aging and reproductive aging, and identified genetic pathways that can extend each of these processes with age. At the molecular level, these processes are remarkably well-conserved through humans. Dr. Murphy’s team has developed new genomic approaches to isolate and transcriptionally profile all of C. elegans’ adult cells, in order to better utilize this system as a model for human disease, and developed assays to model human neurodegenerative disease, including learning, memory, and movement disorders. Dr. Murphy’s lab made the surprising discovery that mating induces rapid post-reproductive aging, utilizing the same genetic pathways that extend longevity. Most recently, her lab has discovered that C. elegans can interpret the small RNA code of the bacteria that they ingest to direct an avoidance response, and that information can be transmitted transgenerationally. 

Murphy has received several awards for her research, including being named a Pew Scholar, March of Dimes Basil O’Connor Scholar, Keck Scholar, McKnight Fellow, Sloan Fellow, GMFR awardee, Howard Hughes Medical Institute-Simons Faculty Scholar, and was awarded both the New Innovator and Pioneer awards from the NIH Director’s office. She has won both the Women in Cell Biology Junior and Mid-Career Awards for Excellence in Research from the American Society for Cell Biology. She is currently the director of the Simons Collaboration on Plasticity in the Aging Brain.

Hotel & Destination

Omni Recommended Restaurants, Transportation and Childcare

The official AGE conference hotel, the elegant Omni La Mansión del Rio, is nestled along the historic River Walk in downtown San Antonio, allowing you to easily explore all the city’s beloved tourist attractions. Blending Spanish colonial architecture and European style, the Four Diamond luxury hotel surrounds you with the romance, grace and charm of a grand hacienda.  Hotel address: 112 College Street, San Antonio, Texas 78205. Book your room by April 15, 2022.

To book a hotel room at the reduced conference rate, please click here.  

For Trainees ONLY, we have a limited block of rooms at a reduced rate.  Click here to book a hotel room at the trainee rate.

San Antonio is the seventh-most populous city in the United States, second largest city in the Southern United States, and the second-most populous city in Texas with 1,434,625 residents in 2020. Founded as a Spanish mission and colonial outpost in 1718, the city became the first chartered civil settlement in present-day Texas in 1731. The area was still part of the Spanish Empire, and later of the Mexican Republic. It is the state's oldest municipality, having celebrated its 300th anniversary on May 1, 2018.  Also known as Military City USA as it is home to one of the largest concentrations of military bases in the United States. For the AGE Central Office staff, we call it home.  If you need any information, please reach out to us.

Our big city has a busy but small airport with two terminals, three baggage carousels and if you walk more than 10 minutes, you are probably walking in circles. The airport (SAT) is conveniently located 9.7 miles from the beautiful downtown Riverwalk and the Omni La Mansión del Rio.  San Antonio has Lyft and Uber.

Weather in May averages 77°F.
