Dear Colleagues,

The 2nd International Conference on Aging and Disease (2016 ICAD) will be held at Stanford University, CA, USA, from September 30 to October 2, 2016. The conference is organized by the International Society on Aging and Disease (ISOAD The conference Chair is the Dean of Stanford University School of Medicine. The confirmed speakers include many international distinguished researchers in the fields of aging and aging-related diseases
The purpose of the conference is to create a forum for basic researchers and physicians to discuss current challenges in aging and aging-related disease. We believe that this conference will provide a platform that will help to fill the current gap between studies of the basic biology of aging and of aging-related disease. All information regarding the conference, including the conference site, speakers etc., can be found at

The first ICAD was held in Beijing in 2014, which was greatly successful. The report about the conference, entitled “Stop aging disease! ICAD 2014” was published in the ISOAD journal – Aging and Disease Following the conference, the ISOAD position paper was published on “The Critical Need to Promote Research of Aging and Aging-related Diseases to Improve Health and Longevity of the Elderly Population” (translated to over 10 languages The special issue of 2014 ICAD will be published in Progress in Neurobiology (impact factor 10.3 The forthcoming ICAD conference in Stanford is anticipated to be no less impactful both for the advancement of science and public support for biomedical research of aging and aging-related diseases, for the achievement of healthy longevity.
