Welcome Message

On behalf of the Organizing Committee, we are most delighted to invite you to the 15th International Symposium on Healthy Aging to be held on 13-14 March 2021.  The Symposium is organized by the Research Centre of Heart, Brain, Hormone and Healthy Aging, Li Ka Shing Faculty of Medicine, The University of Hong Kong.  Due to on-going concerns about the current COVID-19 outbreak, the Organizing Committee has decided to convert the Symposium to a Virtual format.

Following the success of the previous Symposia in 2006 to 2019, this year’s programme is entitled Towards Enduring Youth and is moved from physical event to virtual webinar to allow participants from outside Hong Kong to the meaningful event.  We will continue to focus on the promotion of healthy and happy aging from a multidisciplinary perspective and the development of novel therapeutics as well as the diagnostic approaches for health problems experienced by older people.  Plenary lectures on basic science, prevention, diagnosis, treatment, and rehabilitation related to aging and age-related diseases will be offered in this new and exciting 2-day scientific programme. Young Investigator Awards will also be presented under the support of the Research Centre of Heart, Brain, Hormone & Healthy Aging to recognize the outstanding research in aging undertaken by our next generation of young researchers.

We sincerely welcome all healthcare professionals and scientists to participate in this very stimulating and comprehensive meeting.  We look forward to welcoming you!
