Description

The UCSD Clinical Investigation Institute (CII) and Nature Medicine would like to invite you to attend the third annual Aging 2007: Bench to Bedside, Frontiers of Clinical Investigation Symposium to be held October 18-20, 2007 in La Jolla, California. The theme for this year’s symposium explores innovative approaches to bridge laboratory investigation to clinical research in aging. The topic stands at the cross roads of many disciplines, including endocrinology and cardiology as well as neurodegenerative and musculoskeletal diseases. Multi-disciplinary sessions will include basic, translational, and clinical presentations on cutting edge research to provide an integrated approach to understanding the science of healthy aging. The theme last year was Host Defense, and future themes will include topics such as metabolism, cancer and inflammation. This symposium will provide unique insights and tools for optimizing and streamlining clinical investigation from discovery to drug development.
Target Audience
• Early stage researchers that will benefit from the knowledge and experience of senior scientists, and directly establish contacts
• Experienced researchers and scientists that will find a stimulating environment for discussing achievements, in the perspective of an interdisciplinary approach.
• Pharmaceutical industry scientists that will collaborate with others interested in decreasing the gap from bench to bedside
• Health professionals that are interested in translational research
• Fellows, Post Docs, Trainees and Residents that are interested in the transfer of knowledge from expert scientists to early stage researchers
Objectives
• Describe emerging concepts in clinical investigation and translational research
• Define areas of controversy and provide best evidence for each approach
• Describe innovative approaches to bridge bench to bedside and enhance clinical investigation
• Provide tools for optimizing and streamlining clinical investigation from discovery to development to application
