Dear friends and colleagues,

It is our great pleasure to invite you to attend the 2nd Healthy Ageing Research Centre (HARC) Conference on Translational Research in Healthy Ageing, which will be held from May 11th – 13th, 2016 at the Medical University of Lodz, Poland. The I HARC Conference on Translational Research in Healthy Ageing, which was held April 16th-18th, 2015, attracted 300 participants and proved to be a great success.

The purpose of our second conference is to provide a comprehensive review of current research and recent advances in the field of healthy and active ageing. We hope that this conference will also create an opportunity for  clinicians and basic scientists to discuss together the most important  issues  related to  the   gap between major scientific discoveries in the field and patient benefits, at least in some areas of  gerontology.

If you have any questions or need more information about HARC activities, please do not hesitate to contact us at harc@umed.pl or have a look at our website www.harc.umed.pl

Looking forward to meeting you in Lodz
