Annual Lifespan Conference


A full-day conference bringing together basic and clinical researchers, health professionals and trainees to examine the influence of disparities on the development, and trajectory of biological processes influencing health and disease across the lifespan.

Sponsored by the University of Pittsburgh’s Clinical and Translational Science Institute, Aging Institute of UPMC and the University of Pittsburgh, and Magee-Womens Research Institute.

Keynote speakers that were scheduled for this year’s conference are listed below.

Out of concern for the health and safety of our community due to COVID-19, the Lifespan conference in May has been canceled. We are deeply sorry to have to cancel and look forward to rescheduling in 2021. Wishing everyone health and strength during this challenging time.
