Texas aging meeting to feature NIA Interventions Testing Program 1st report

SAN ANTONIO (May 29, 2007) -- The first interim report from three institutions conducting the National Institute on Aging (NIA) Interventions Testing Program will help kick off the American Aging Associations 36th Annual Meeting, which starts Saturday and ends Monday (June 2-4) in San Antonio.

The interventions report will occur in a pre-meeting conference on Friday, June 1.

Meeting sessions will focus on genes that determine life span, stem cells and aging, animals that age at different rates, and a debate on evolutionary theory and modern aging research.

Highlights also will include a presentation on the CALERIE Study of caloric restriction in humans (calorie restriction is the only method proven thus far to extend life in rodents) and a report on life span expansion by resveratrol, a compound found in red grapes.

"This conference will showcase the hottest areas of research in aging, and we are excited to welcome these researchers to San Antonio and Texas," said 2007 AGE President Holly Van Remmen, Ph.D., assistant professor of cellular and structural biology at The University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio.

She is with the universitys Sam and Ann Barshop Institute for Longevity and Aging Studies, one of the countrys premier aging research institutes.
