Symposium 2015: Diet, Sulfur Amino Acids, and Healthspan
September 20–22, 2015, Tarrytown, NY
Following on the success of the first symposium, we broadened our scope for 2015 to the effects of diet and sulfur amino acids on healthspan. Attendees addressed methionine metabolism issues from the molecular to the phylogenic level. Overall, the presentations highlighted the potential importance of MR as an anti-aging strategy and some of the molecular and physiologic pathways that it affects. The exchange served to give direction to the whole field of research.
The keynote address was given by Dr. Caleb E. Finch (USC Davis School of Gerontology), a leader in the study of aging and inflammation. Full papers from speakers have been published in the international, peer-reviewed journal Annals of the New York Academy of Sciences.
