ICCNS-SPRINGER Award 2019 Recipient

ICCNS-SPRINGER Award 2019 Recipient

Professor Cynthia Kenyon

‬ Pr. Cynthia Kenyon

Cynthia Kenyon helped to pioneer the field of aging, showing that the aging process is plastic and subject to regulation.  Her work with long-lived mutant roundworms stimulated an intensive study of the molecular regulation of aging, and led to the realization that a conserved endocrine network regulates the aging process throughout the animal kingdom.  Dr. Kenyon was on the UCSF faculty for many years, and is currently Vice President of Aging Research at Calico Life Sciences, a Google/Alphabet company.
Summary of the presentation to be given on October 21, 2019
Lifespan and aging were once thought to be immutable: we just wear out like old cars. This paradigm has been overturned completely by molecular genetic experiments initiated in the roundworm C. elegans and now extended to many species. Changing specific genes or cells can extend healthy lifespan dramatically while postponing age-related disease. In this lecture, the history of these discoveries and the possibilities they create for the future will be discussed. Promising new research frontiers, such as the immortality of the germ lineage, will be described as well.

NICE MEETING

For the first time this year,

the 11th International Workshop on the CCN family of Genes

Nice, October 20-24, 2022

will celebrate the widening of ICCNS scope to

the biology of all

Cell Communication Networks factors.

***********

Therefore the 11 th workshop will be open to all aspects of cell communication and signaling factors biology.

Special sessions will accomodate abstracts reporting new results outside of the original CCN family topics which will still constitue the core of the 2022 meeting. The final organization of the sessions will be adapted to the number of submissions.

Deadlines for abstracts submissions and registration will be communicated shortly. A limited number of oral communications representative of all submissions will be selected on a first come first serve basis and scientific content. There will be no poster session.

ICCNS-Springer Award

ICCNS-SPRINGER Award

About the Award

One goal of the International CCN Society (ICCNS) is to to facilitate the diffusion of scientific information and promote contacts with other Scientific Societies.

As a first step along this line of action and with the support of the worldwide renowned publisher Springer, the Journal of Cell Communication and Signaling (JCCS) has been created as the official journal of the ICCNS.

In an effort to broaden the scientific scope of the International Workshop on the CCN family of Genes, Professor Bernard Perbal, President of the ICCNS and Peter Butler, Editor at Springer Editor in charge of JCCS, have agreed upon the creation of an award to be given to a scientist in recognition of his/her scientific merit and contribution to his/her field of interest.

In order to trigger interactions between scientists working in the CCN field with those working on related biological and biomedical areas it has been agreed that the recipient of the ICCNS-SPRINGER award would be chosen outside of the CCN field, and would be given the possibility to chair an Educational session in the frame of an International CCN workshop.

The Award covers the full cost of meeting registration fees.

The name of the recipient and the topic of the Educational Session will be communicated to Springer by the President of the ICCNS, after consultation of the Executive Board and Council of the ICCNS.
