Call for Abstracts: Targeting Metabesity 2019

Abstracts are now being accepted for a unique and important conference, Targeting Metabesity 2019, scheduled for October 15-16, at the Carnegie Institution for Science in Washington, DC.

“Metabesity” refers to the constellation of chronic diseases of aging, including diabetes, obesity, cardiovascular and neurodegenerative diseases, cancer, and the aging process itself, that have common metabolic roots and thus may be susceptible to common solutions, notably disease delay and prevention.

Several leaders will be speaking, including Drs. Ralph DeFronzo (UT Health San Antonio), David Sinclair (Harvard Medical School), Nir Barzilai (Albert Einstein College of Medicine), among others. Distinguished guests from industry, healthcare, regulators, and capital markets will also be attending.

Attached is more information on the conference and instructions on how to submit abstracts.
