This meeting will focus on the intersection between basic aging mechanisms and their effect on skeletal muscle disease - particular focus will include cachexia, frailty and sarcopenia. Molecular mechanisms discussed will include mTORC1 signaling, DNA damage & repair, aging-induced gene expression changes, etc. The meeting's interactive format and its small size makes it unique.

The center is located on a beautiful hill on top of the lake town of Ascona, in Southern Switzerland.
