Biomedical ageing research crucial for the Future of a Healthy Ageing European society
23 July 2019
The Coimbra Group Life Sciences Working Group will organise a conference in Brussels under the topic of Ageing. The event will take place in Brussels on the 9th October 2019 and it aims at drawing attention to the need of investment into basic research in biomedical aging as a means to achieve healthy aging. More information about the event will follow soon.
A group of researchers have developed a policy paper which will serve as a motto for the conference: “Significant investment into biomedical aging research is essential for achieving healthy aging amid a worldwide demographic change with 2 billion elderly individuals in 2050. The logistical and financial burdens of a chronically ill aging society outweigh by far the required investments into research & development.”
