We are excited to announce that JAM 2020 has been rescheduled as a VIRTUAL meeting that will take place from October 20-23, 2021.
This year, we have joined forces with friends and colleagues from the European Research Institute of the Biology of Ageing (), Groningen, Netherlands - to set up a world-class meeting for you.
With already 20 confirmed, renowned international speakers - we are convinced that the Groningen-Jena Aging Meeting (G-JAM 2021) will be THE ageing meeting in 2021.
At the moment we plan G-JAM as an online meeting, but we leave the options open to change into a hybrid meeting should the COVID situation allow.
Aging is a major risk factor for the development of organ dysfunction and disease. Although under debate, there exists a strong association between decline in stem cell function, possibly impinging on the selection of mutant stem cells, impairments in tissue maintenance and disease development during aging. The G-JAM will discuss basic concepts and therapeutic targets on the causes and consequences of stem cell during organism aging.
Principal themes and objectives of the meeting
The G-JAM fosters interaction of researchers engaged in the study of basic principles of stem cell and tissue maintenance in aging. The meeting will focus on basic molecular and genetic processes that affect genetic and epigenetic stability, protein homeostasis and metabolic processes - thereby impairing the functionality and self-renewal of stem cells and organ maintenance.
The main aim of the G-JAM is to increase our understanding of organism aging.
