What's the secret to a long and healthy life? Scientists gathering in Sydney on Friday may have the answers.

First Biology of Ageing Conference explores how to prolong life, maintain health 1461889709312

At the inaugural Australian Biology of Ageing Conference, hosted by the University of NSW, more than 130 experts will discuss the latest research into prolonging life, maintaining health and slowing the ageing process.

Among them is keynote speaker Dr Darren Baker, who has found a way to increase the median lifespan of mice by as much as 35 per cent.

An Associate Professor of biochemistry and molecular biology at the Mayo Clinic in the US, Dr Baker and fellow lead researcher Jan van Deursen conducted a study on senescent cells, or worn-out cells that can no longer divide.

"We know that these senescent cells accumulate with age and at sites of age-related diseases," Dr Baker said. "So we developed a trick where we can remove these particular cells and we looked at these consequences."

The researchers engineered mice so their senescent cells could be killed off by the injection of a drug. The mice received this treatment from 12 months of age, the equivalent of about 40 years in human terms.
