An estimated 4,000 professionals are expected to attend the five-day gathering at the Sheraton New Orleans and New Orleans Marriott. The theme for 2014 is "Optimal Aging Through Research" and the program schedule contains more than 400 scientific sessions featuring research presented for the first time.

The complimentary media registration allows access to all scientific sessions and the Exhibit Hall. Badges and printed program materials can be picked up in the Press Room, which will be located in Salon 821 at the Sheraton.

Registration information is available at http://www.geron.org/press. GSA has locked in special conference rates at the two co-headquarters hotels, which will be available until October 31.

We look forward to seeing you in New Orleans!
