ISTRC 2020

International Sarcopenia Translational Research Conference 

11-12 June 2020

Newcastle upon Tyne, UK

Welcome

‌‌We are delighted to present the inaugural International Sarcopenia Translational Research Conference on 11-12 June 2020, being held in the vibrant city of Newcastle upon Tyne, UK.

Sarcopenia is a growing area of clinical and research activity, and the need for more widespread diagnosis and development of treatment options is pressing. Translational research is key to these aims.  Great strides are being made in our scientific understanding of sarcopenia and muscle health, and the challenge now is to translate these advances into better care and better treatments for older people.

We hope that you will be able to join us, enjoy the opportunity to hear from leaders in this rapidly evolving field, and help shape the future translational research agenda.

We look forward to seeing you in Newcastle!
