This summit will be held on April 22-23 as a satellite meeting of the International Conference on Frailty and Sarcopenia Research (ICFSR).  Friday afternoon’s session will be open to all ICFSR attendees so we hope this will be an opportunity for clinicians and researchers to learn more about sarcopenia and frailty in veterinary medicine (and the potential for companion animal species to be natural animal models of human sarcopenia).  Saturday’s session will be limited to 50 attendees to allow for in-person discussion and interaction (approximately 50:50 human and veterinary).  

We will have a combination of keynote and lightning talks, as well as in-depth discussion to highlight the current research, areas of similarities and differences, and opportunities for collaboration to advance research across species in this field. A full list of topics and speakers is on the website: where you can register for this translational summit and for the main ICFSR conference.

The International Conference on Frailty and Sarcopenia Research (ICFSR) is a meeting dedicated to speeding the development of high-quality clinical trials in frail older adults to accelerate the discovery of treatments, prevention methods for healthy aging, and prevention of disabilities and dependency in older adults.  We hope that this summit will pave the way for future cross-species collaboration to advance research across species.
