The 63rd annual Montagna Symposium on the Biology of Skin, Skin Aging: Molecular Mechanisms and Tissue Consequences, will examine the rapidly evolving field of gerontology as it relates to skin. Topics to be discussed include:
- Signaling imbalances and effects on tissue homeostasis
- Role of telomeres in aging and photoaging
- Age-associated changes in dermal matrix and clinical consequences
- Innovative strategies to treat and prevent skin aging
