Ageing and Disease

A Colloquium organised by Collegio A Volta, the University of Pavia and Kingl's College London will take place on the 10th of May in Aula U Foscolo (65, Strada Nuova) and will address recent advances in research on Ageing and Disease. The changes in housing, the increase in food production, progress in the treatment of infectious diseases and general public health measures have not only led to a major increase in the human population but have also more than double human lifespan in the last two hundred years. The link between ageing and disease is a complex and this Colloquium will focus on selected major areas of research.
