Nutrition and Aging: From Cells to Body Systems and Populations

Nutrition plays an important role in sarcopenia, obesity, sarcopenic-obesity, and maintaining physical and cognitive function during aging. On July 10 - 11, 2014 the IANA (International Academy on Nutrition and Aging) will be hosted in Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA. The meeting will cover topics ranging from basic science cellular responses, to body systems, and population-based nutritional research. All topics have an overarching theme of preventing frailty and loss of function with advancing age. This research and practice symposium will be organized with the IAGG (the International Association of Gerontology and Geriatrics), the IANA, and the University of New Mexico, School of Medicine. Researchers from around the world will present new findings on these important topics. The proceedings will be published in the JFA (Journal of Frailty and Aging).
