Due to the evolving situation with Covid-19, this meeting was postponed from 20-22 April 2020 and will now be held as a virtual conference.

About the conference

Longitudinal studies are ideal tools for studying many things including age-related functional changes, and the development and progression of chronic diseases. This conference will bring together scientists working on studies in childhood, adult and late life to identify novel biomarkers of functional decline and development of disease susceptibility, and to understand the lifetime drivers and underlying pathways of these processes.

The programme will showcase new findings, methods and technologies, contemporary approaches and translational opportunities within and across cohort studies in high, middle and low income countries. This year’s meeting will also explore LPS solutions to the Covid-19 pandemic.

The meeting is aimed at population scientists in epidemiology, biomedicine and the social sciences, involved in longitudinal research, longitudinal studies, genome biology, dynamic measures of physiology and other relevant fields.


The conference will start at approximately 1 pm (GMT) on Tuesday 9 March and close at approximately 6 pm on Friday 12 March 2021. All times are given in Greewich Mean Time. See the time where you are here.

Topics will include:

  • LPS Responses to the COVID-19 Pandemic
  • Molecular Markers and Prediction
  • Longitudinal Studies in LMIC countries
  • Contemporary Approaches to LPS
  • Frailty
  • Translation of Longitudinal Studies
