Calorie Restriction in Aging Research: Where Have We Been and Where Are We Going?

 "The past five years have seen a resurgence of scientific interest in the impact and mechanism of food restriction on aging thanks to new studies in invertebrate models and emerging information from human and primate studies.  These new studies have raised new questions about the food restriction effect and challenged some prevailing orthodoxies.  This conference is designed to address new questions and controversies head-on."

-- Steven N. Austad, PhD, conference organizer.
