This landmark event will convene basic, translational, and clinical researchers from academic institutions, pharmaceutical companies, government agencies, and non-profit organizations, who work in the disparate fields of HIV/AIDS, oncology, diabetes, and aging research. Speakers will explore how chronic diseases (e.g., HIV/AIDS, diabetes, and cancer) and their associated therapies can accelerate age-related health decline. Participants will identify future directions of research required for a more complete understanding of the relationship between chronic diseases and aging.
