This workshop will focus on recent advances, both biological and technological, in our knowledge of immunosenescence, aging, and their impact on chronic disease development. The past few years have seen major advances in our knowledge of immune function during aging, and improved methods to define immunological states. Notably, advances in single cell technologies have demonstrated the potential to permit interrogation of metabolic and phenotypic variation of leukocytes, including rare tissue resident populations, and circadian gene regulation in macrophages. The workshop will highlight recent advances, discuss mechanisms involved in accelerated development of immune aging and chronic disease, identify knowledge gaps and challenges, establish scientific research priorities, and promote collaboration between investigators.
