Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory Meeting on Mechanisms of Aging
September 27 – October 1, 2022
Abstracts Due: July 8
AACR Special Conference on Aging and Cancer
Nov. 17-20, 2022 • Hilton San Diego Bayfront • San Diego, CA
Make plans to submit an abstract and join cochairs Steven E. Artandi, Joanna L. Groden, and Eileen P. White for the first AACR Special Conference on Aging and Cancer. The program will explore how cellular and microenvironmental factors combine with extrinsic factors, such as stress and racial injustice, to impact aging processes and cancer development.
8th Biennial International Cancer and Cognition Task Force Meeting
January 30 and 31, 2023 • Town and Country Resort • San Diego, CA
This meeting will occur just prior to the International Neuropsychological Society Meeting. Abstract submission deadline is November 1, 2022, and submission instructions will be announced soon.

GUMC Healthy Aging Symposium
July 14th, 2022 | Fisher Colloquium, Hariri Building, 10 am – 4 pm
The GUMC Center for Healthy Aging, the Aging and Alzheimer’s Research Training Program, the Georgetown Aging and Health Program, and the Georgetown Lombardi Institute for Cancer and Aging Research are pleased to sponsor our first annual symposium focused on aging.
This symposium is open to the entire Georgetown University community and its community partners. Presenters will be addressing critical issues in aging research, policy and care from cells to society and include transdisciplinary researchers from several Georgetown Schools, cross-campus programs, community groups, MedStar Health and the NIH.
Our goal is to have attendees get to know others interested in aging, describe resources, and stimulate people coming together to form new teams to address challenges of an aging society.

“Cellular senescence: Quo vadis?”
Abstract: Cellular senescence is a state with both beneficial and deleterious consequences for complex organisms. Senescent cells arrest growth, essentially irreversibly, resist cell death and develop a complex senescence-associated secretory phenotype (SASP). The SASP includes inflammatory molecules chemokines, cytokines and DAMPS, proteases and bioactive lipids. Mouse models show that senescent cells are prime drivers of many diverse age-related pathologies, including median (but not maximum) life span. I will discuss the challenges of dissecting the beneficial from the deleterious effects of senescence, the development of drugs that can selectively kill senescent cells or suppress modules of the SASP, some large outstanding questions in the field of aging biology and the promise of living substantially healthier, if not longer, lives.

WEBINAR: Preclinical, Clinical, and Biobehavioral Insights into Aging-Related Breast Cancer Survivorship Outcomes
Two experts will present preclinical and clinical cancer and aging insights from the Thinking and Living with Cancer (TLC) Study. They will also discuss biobehavioral modifiers of aging, highlighting the role of sleep as a potential intervention target.

The Hartford Talks: Geriatric Oncology in the Medical Home Model
Andrew E. Chapman DO, FACP
Learning Objectives: As a result of participating in this Live Activity, participants should be able to:
- Apply geriatric assessment and best practice interventions to ensure quality and safe care for the older adult with cancer
- List the role of the inter-professional team in supporting the older adult with cancer
- Explain the Medical Home Model and its impact on patient & family experience, quality outcomes and patient safety
- Explore the Medical Home Model applied to older adults with cancer
