This think tank meeting is the first in a series of deliberations for the Cancer & Accelerated Aging Initiative to identify research gaps and promising approaches to improve our ability to understand, predict, and mitigate short- and long-term aging-related consequences of cancer and cancer treatment.

Through our efforts, we ultimately seek to identify scientific and research needs, encourage integration of aging-related endpoints into cancer treatment and survivorship studies, and build a transdisciplinary research portfolio to optimize healthy aging for cancer survivors. We will strive to elucidate the best methods to measure aging among cancer survivors, identify aging phenotypes, and produce a strategic and unified vision to fill the identified research gaps and establish methodological approaches to characterize aging phenotypes.
