Venue: CHANG YUNG-FA FOUNDATION International Convention Center, Conference Room 1101. (Transportation)
The forum, 2023 International Conference for Healthy Aging and Biomarkers, will be held by National Center for Geriatrics and Welfare Research of the National Health Research Institutes (NHRI), at CHANG YUNG-FA FOUNDATION International Convention Center in Taipei, Taiwan, from 01 to 02 December, 2023. This marks the second year of our annual international conference since the establishment of the National Center for Geriatrics and Welfare Research.
Our conference theme revolves around the multifaceted world of healthy aging and biomarkers. Healthy aging transcends the mere absence of disease; it encompasses the holistic well-being of individuals as they age, including their physical, mental, and social aspects. It empowers people to lead active and fulfilling lives as they grow older. In parallel, biomarkers, measurable indicators of health status, have become a focal point of interest within the fields of gerontology and healthcare. This event seeks to delve deep into the intricate relationship between healthy aging and biomarkers and the implications they hold for enhancing the well-being of aging populations.
Biomarkers, these biological measurements, reflect a myriad of aspects concerning an individual’s health. They range from genetic markers to molecular, cellular, and physiological indicators. Within the realm of aging research, common biomarkers include DNA methylation patterns, telomere length, inflammatory markers, and cognitive function assessments. These markers facilitate the monitoring of health changes and the prediction of potential age-related diseases and disabilities.
In our journey to understand the mechanisms of healthy aging, biomarkers play a pivotal role. By studying these markers over time, researchers can identify trends and patterns that serve as indicators of overall health and well-being.
While biomarkers offer great promise for the world of healthy aging, they come with their set of challenges. Standardizing biomarker measurements and addressing ethical and privacy concerns are just a few of the hurdles we face.
The future of healthy aging and biomarkers hinges on our ability to deepen our understanding of the connections between various biomarkers and health outcomes. It also entails harnessing the capabilities of technology and big data to analyze vast datasets and uncover meaningful patterns. Our ultimate goal is to develop more accurate predictive models and interventions that promote not only longer lives but also healthier and more fulfilling ones.
The interplay between healthy aging and biomarkers is a dynamic and ever-evolving field. Biomarkers provide invaluable tools for assessing health and well-being in older individuals, allowing for early disease detection, personalized interventions, and the prediction of health outcomes. As research in this area advances, it carries the potential to revolutionize our approach to aging, ultimately enhancing the quality of life for older adults worldwide.
We look forward to the exciting discussions, groundbreaking research, and insightful perspectives that will be shared over the course of this conference. Thank you for joining us on this journey toward healthier and happier aging.
Let the 2023 International Conference for Healthy Aging and Biomarkers begin!
