For ​millions ​of ​people, ​pets ​are ​considered ​part ​of ​the ​family. ​ ​Unfortunately, ​companion ​animals ​such ​as ​dogs ​and ​cats ​age ​rapidly ​and ​have ​relatively ​short ​life ​expectancies. ​ ​ ​Research ​in ​the ​biology ​of ​aging ​has ​made ​tremendous ​strides ​over ​the ​past ​several ​years, ​with ​a ​few ​interventions ​having ​been ​found ​capable ​of ​slowing ​aging ​and ​extending ​healthy ​lifespan ​by ​20-40% ​in ​small ​mammals ​such ​as ​mice ​and ​rats. ​ ​These ​same ​interventions ​may ​be ​able ​to ​provide ​dogs ​and ​cats ​with ​three ​to ​five ​or ​more ​years ​of ​additional ​healthy, ​youthful ​life. ​ ​This ​symposium ​will ​bring ​together ​experts ​in ​canine ​health ​with ​experts ​in ​the ​biology ​of ​aging ​to ​share ​their ​latest ​research ​discoveries ​and ​discuss ​how ​to ​best ​understand ​and ​tackle ​aging ​in ​companion ​animals. ​ ​Our ​primary ​goal ​is ​to ​accelerate ​translation ​of ​this ​science ​to ​promote ​healthy ​longevity ​not ​just ​in ​people, ​but ​also ​in ​our ​pets. ​
