This 2-day meeting brings together leading scientists from across disciplines (immunology, aging, genomics, and computational biology) with shared interests in using systems immunology to understand aging and aging-related diseases. This year will focus on “The Immune Resilience of Aging”.
Virtual and in-person attendance are available for this hybrid event. In-person activities will take place at The Jackson Laboratory for Genomic Medicine in Farmington, Connecticut.
Registration is Open
Sep 22 - 23
Aging is a complex and multi-dimensional phenotype that affects all tissues of all organisms. In humans, aging–related diseases, including cardiovascular diseases, cancer and type 2 diabetes, pose a huge health and economic burden, which will continue to increase as the aging population is expected to double by 2030. Disruption of immune cell functions and responses plays a significant role in the etiology of many aging-related diseases. Recent advances in genomic technologies (e.g., single cell transcriptomics and epigenomics) enable precise description of molecular and cellular changes associated with aging in human cells as well as in model organisms, including the mouse. However, uncovering the functional and clinical significance of these genomic and cellular changes is a significant computational challenge.

The Jackson Laboratory (JAX) Courses and Conferences program is committed to:
(1) Fostering an educational and working environment that encourages and supports our mission and the promotion of free and open exchange of scientific ideas;
(2) Creating and maintaining a safe and respectful environment for all in-person and virtual participants in educational programs, including event directors and organizers, internal and invited speakers, attendees, and all staff; and
(3) Providing an environment free from discrimination and harassment, in accordance with federal, state and local law, at all of our courses, conferences, symposia and workshops delivered both on and off of the JAX campuses.

What to do in case of breaches or violations of these guidelines:
Program organizers and leadership can be approached informally about any apparent or actual breaches or violations. Breaches or violations should be reported to the specific program leader or to JAX Courses and Conferences organizers in person or by email:
Reports can be submitted by those who experience harassment or discrimination as well as by those who witness violations of the behavior laid out in this Code. The TDCC will act as needed to resolve the matter, up to and including immediate expulsion of the offending participant(s) from the meeting and exclusion from future events offered by JAX. Individuals at any NIH-supported conference who have questions, concerns or complaints related to harassment or discrimination can also file a report with the HHS Office for Civil Rights (OCR) or notify NIH. Seeking assistance from a program leader or organizer in no way prohibits filing complaints with HHS OCR.
All events will be held at The Jackson Laboratory for Genomic Medicine, located on the UConn Health Campus in Farmington. Participants are responsible for their own lodging accommodations.
