Aging (GSA) Meeting in San Diego, November 15-18

Dear Friends and Colleagues,

If you plan to attend annual meeting of the Gerontological Society of America (GSA) in San Diego on November 15-18, we would like to invite you to three GSA events there with our participation:

(1) Thursday, November 15, 2012, 8:00 AM-9:30 AM, Room 7A (San Diego Convention Center)
      Symposium "Frailty: from the Cell to Society"
      L.A. Gavrilov, N.S. Gavrilova "Familial Factors in Longevity: Exploring Complex Environmental and Genetic Effects"

(2) Friday, November 16, 2012, 7:00 - 8:30 PM, Room 14B (San Diego Convention Center)
     GSA Interest Group Meeting "Societal Implications of Delaying Aging." 
      Convener: Leonid Gavrilov
     Abstract:  Foreseeable interventions against aging would constitute true preventative medicine for diseases and disabilities of old age. Learned debate on the immense social implications is thus timely at GSA, challenging biologists, clinicians and sociologists to    explore an area where their expertise particularly intersects. Informal round table discussion

(3) Sunday, November 18, 2012, 8:00 AM-9:30 AM, Room 1A (San Diego Convention Center)
     Symposium "Biodemography of Aging and Longevity"
     N.S. Gavrilova, L.A. Gavrilov  "Biodemography of Old-Age Mortality in Humans and Rodents"

Feel free to disseminate this invitation among your colleagues, who may be interested.

Hope to see you there!

Kind regards,

-- Leonid
