This is another NIH workshop that may be of interest. I’m hoping to gain some greater insight into the limits/guidelines/considerations of translating animal studies to humans (beyond “stuff in mice doesn’t always translate to people”). Registration is required, but totally free, and open to the public.

Workshop themes will include:
-Current efforts in translational geroscience using laboratory mice, rats, domesticated animals, and non-human primates;
-The application of comparative biology to gain new insights in geroscience;
-The impact of nutrition and the microbiome in animal research;
-New ways to utilize data from animals that are retired from research; and
-An exploration of new and alternative models for translational geroscience.
