DGfA Meeting 2023


This year’s meeting will take place on June 29-30, 2023 at the Volkshaus in Jena, Germany.

It is our great pleasure to invite you to register for the DGfA meeting (German Society for Aging Research) in Jena this year. We have three outstanding keynote speakers presenting talks on emerging and inspiring topics in aging research
 including an emphasis on inter-organ communication that will be extremely exciting for our members and participants.

The 2023 international meeting will be held at the Volkshaus Jena, Carl-Zeiss-Platz 15, 07743 Jena, Germany, on June 29th 12.30pm to 30th 3pm.

We will bring together leading experts in the field of aging with the aim to foster intense discussions on new concepts and unpublished data. We encourage you to submit abstracts on novel concepts that are based on overarching new research findings from the lab to be selected for short talks. We champion the promotion and exposure of junior scientists and invite students and postdocs to also submit abstracts to be selected for short talks or posters.

The DGfA meetings are limited to a maximum of 150 attendees to foster personal interactions. All talks will be presented in the central auditorium, there will be no parallel sessions. Participants come from all major institutions and laboratories working on aging research worldwide.

Your participation will be highly valuable and will contribute to the continued success of the DGfA meetings.
