Title: June 14th, 2023, at Palais Eschenbach


Please register via our online registration form.

We are excited to announce the Wiggers-Bernard Conference: Senescence in vivo. While cellular senescence is well established in vitro, the induction, persistence, frequency, and function of senescence in vivo is a recent line of research with a lot of potential for new therapeutic approaches. We have invited scientists who have established their research careers with a focus on the role of senescence in vivo, offering an ideal opportunity for networking. The talks will focus on the role of senescence in physiology and pathology, and how to modulate senescence in vivo.

About the conference

The event will take place in Vienna on the 14th of June. It will start at 9.00 and there will be a concert and buffet at 18.30, both of which are included in the registration fee.

Cost: 100 euros, including the concert and buffet

Location: Palais Eschenbach, Vienna, Austria

There is limited available space, so be sure to register early!


Our program includes the following sessions:

  • General Concepts, Mechanisms and Markers of Senescence
  • Senescence in Physiology
  • Senescence in Pathology/Cancer
  • Interventions on Senescence

The event will be concluded with a  Concert by the Neue Wiener Concert Schrammeln and a Networking Buffet.
