We are delighted to present the inaugural International Sarcopenia Translational Research Conference (ISTRC), to be held virtually 10 – 11 June 2021.

Sarcopenia is a growing area of clinical and research activity, and the need for more widespread diagnosis and the 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 disease, 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 and enjoy the opportunity to hear from leaders in this rapidly evolving field to shape the future research agenda.
