One day live interactive workshop where local and international experts present the hot topics in the management of frailty syndrome. Its objective is to review the latest cutting-edge research in frailty syndrome from a multidisciplinary point of view, as well as to provide an up-to-date overview of related issues, such as sarcopenia, inflamaging, and microbiome.

According to the World Health Organization, elderly people aged 60 years or older were 600 million in 2000 and it is expected to reach 2 billion by 2050. The aging process is associated with the decline and deterioration of functional properties at the cellular, tissue, and organ level that yields a loss of homeostasis and decreased adaptability to internal and external stress. All these changes increase the vulnerability to disease and mortality.
