The annual conference took place in Manchester this year. Sauvik Das Gupta won the award for best presentation, but we enjoyed excellent presentations by all PhD students and a fascinating keynote by Dr. Aphrodite Vasilaki on the role of reactive oxygen species in neuromuscular ageing.
Professors Hans Degens and Neil reeves organised the start-up corse and methodological workshops at MMU in February 2016. As illustrated here Move-age fellows experienced first hand how fear of falling may affect motor control. An enthusiastically received social event was the visit to the Man U stadium.
This year’s annual conference was held in Manchester at MMU. With 19 excellent presentations by the move-age fellows and a keynote lecture by professor Neil Pendleton on Frailty, this meeting was highly successful. The award for best presentation was given to Nathalie van Beek and runner up was Masood Mazaheri.
This message is long overdue, but still very much worth to be celebrated: the first two MOVE-AGE joint degrees were awarded by VU University Amsterdam and KU Leuven to Diana Sanchez-Ramirez and Edurado Cofré Lizama. The photos show Diana celebrating with the other MOVE-AGE fellows and Eduardo before it was time to celebrate.

The start-up course will be organized from 11-15 November at VU University Amsterdam. This course is a broad introductory course on the issue of mobility during ageing intended for the the third group of fellows who have been awarded a scholarship within the Erasmus Mundus Joint Doctorate program.
The second MOVE-AGE annual conference was held in Leuven from July 1st – July 3rd. After a keynote lecture by prof. Chris Todd, all PhD students presented their plans and progress. The meeting was closed by a lecture on (post-doc) career development by Dr. Lucia Smit. The photograph shows the attendants just before the conference dinner on Tuesday.
