Geriatrics and Gerontology is a branch of medical science which is concerned with the nature and awareness about population ageing and addresses its challenges. International Conference on Geriatrics and Gerontology (ICGG-2021) organized by PAGES Conferences is scheduled to be held from October 25-27, 2021 in Vancouver, Canada and focuses on different scientific sessions of the conference that discuss the length and breadth of the subject while enhancing your knowledge on research in this subject. It is organized around the theme to promote and enhance the stature of Geriatrics and Gerontology medical sciences.
The event is anticipated to be attended by professionals around the world with an active interest in the geriatrics and gerontology studies to discuss current trends in medical science. The conference aims to provide unlimited opportunities for all the participants to interact with prominent role players in the field and expand their global network of scholars and professionals to enhance their academic and professional goals.
The conference includes keynote presentations and plenary talks from prominent personalities in the field from around the globe which provide a new direction for further research in the field. In addition, round-table discussions, workshops, debate sessions and poster presentations aim at empowering the scholars with latest research and foster new connections.
The event will be a wonderful platform for students, academicians, medical professionals, exhibitors and sponsors in Geriatrics and Gerontology to network with their peers and increase their network. We hope the event will facilitate a wide range of discussions in Geriatrics and Gerontology medical sciences and opens new dialogue to steer future agenda in the right direction.

University of Southern CaliforniaUSA
I work in academia as an internationally recognized neuropharmacology and neuroimmunology researcher. I published more than 500 scientific reports in the field of neuropsychopharmacology and signal transduction. I am leading a laboratory interested in understanding the fundamental neurobiological mechanisms of neuropsychiatric disorders to contribute to the development of new pharmacological treatments. We use genetic, neuroendocrine, and neurochemical methods. We recognize the role of the immune system in modulating neuropsychiatric diseases and we are developing in vitro cellular models and in vivo animal models to study the neuro-immune interactions under normal and disease states has successfully combined research, teaching, administration, and clinical care and continue to work on advancing our understanding of serious mental illness and drug development. We used to translate research findings into medical practice for the purposes of diagnosing, preventing, and treating diseases. I have published scientific reports on peptides, their receptors, signal transduction, and the role of these neuropeptides in the immune systems. I hold patents for using modified peptides in the treatment of septic shock. I have skills and expertise in receptor pharmacology, immunohistochemistry, in vivo and in vitro cell culture, biochemistry, animal models, cell and molecular biology. Ihas lectured worldwide on these subjects and others. I have 19 years of research experience with the development and use of in vitro models to test compounds, such as receptor binding, receptor activation, signal transduction, receptor-receptor interactions, and induction of changes in the cell cycle, proliferation, and apoptosis. Furthermore, I validated appropriate assays and models of diseases, screen compounds, and study mechanisms of action.
I am currently a Professor of Health Services Research in the Medical School at Swansea University, Wales, UK. I lead the Patient and Population Health Informatics research theme within the School. I lead the PRIME Centre Wales research team in Swansea and am a member of the Editorial Board for the UK’s, National Institute for Health Research, Health Technology Assessment Journal. I led the Trials Unit in Swansea to full registration with the UKCRC, retain an interest in experimental evaluation methods, and have a strong record of grant capture. My main research interests and expertise lie in the fields of emergency pre-hospital and unscheduled care, primary care, health inequalities, use of linked data in evaluation, and research support. In these areas, the focus of my work is to plan, design, and carry out evaluations of health technologies and new models of service delivery which often involve changing roles and working across boundaries between service providers. The research is applied, pragmatic, and leads to impact in the real world of policy and practice. I actively encourage and support public and patient involvement in research to enhance relevance, accountability, and quality. My work is strongly patient-focused and collaborative and uses mixed methods to achieve study aims.

University Medical Center GroningenNetherlands
Professor of Health Technology Assessment Erik Buskens has been appointed Program Director Healthy Ageing UMCG as of September 2010. The latter among others encompasses coordination of new and cross-faculty research and education programs, development of innovative health care concepts inclusive of e-health, and evaluation thereof. He will therefore increasingly focus his research expertise in epidemiology and later on in Health Technology Assessment on topics related to Healthy Ageing. Previous fields of interest such as cerebrovascular disorders and mathematical disease modeling will be incorporated. Balancing between benefits and risks and benefits and costs remain recognized issues that should consistently be incorporated in clinical and policy decision making. Integrating all available evidence and drawing valid inferences is the challenge driving his teaching and scientific ambitions. His medical degree was obtained in Rotterdam. He subsequently worked as a military doctor and resident of internal medicine. During a period as research associate appointed at Erasmus University and Sophia Child Hospital Rotterdam training in epidemiology was completed, ultimately resulting in a Ph.D. Later orientation on MTA took place primarily in Utrecht, New York, and Boston. As a (co-) principal investigator in national or international collaborative projects addressing quality of life, cost-effectiveness, and organization of care in diagnosis and treatment of carotid artery stenosis, abdominal aortic aneurysm, and intracranial aneurysms several groundbreaking results were attained. Successful collaborative projects have been set up with the Universities of Reykjavik, Tromsø, Seattle, and Karolinska Institutet Stockholm, and Massachusetts General Hospital, Harvard Medical School, Boston. Designs ranged from RCTs through observational studies and entire ‘in silico’ experiments. Methodological interests comprise the role of heterogeneity/frailty on cost-effectiveness and optimization of organization of care through simulation. Recently concluded projects address the utility and cost-effectiveness of screening for asymptomatic carotid artery stenosis and implementation and optimization of routine ultrasound screening for congenital hip dysplasia in newborns. As of 2006, after starting at University Medical Center Groningen as professor and chair of the HTA unit, new research opportunities emerged. Modeling and evaluation of innovations were expanded to early HTA. Moreover, the focus of UMCG on Healthy Ageing and successful collaboration with UniversityCenter for Elderly Care at Groningen lead to a new clinical focus. Supervising Ph.D. students resulted in over 10 theses and over 180 papers published in international peer-reviewed journals.
