Decades ago, scientists identified autophagy as the process by which the body recycles proteins and organelles. Lately, researchers have gained significant insights into how defects in the system affect longevity and drive numerous diseases. On September 22, 2016, experts from around the world gathered at the New York Academy of Medicine for the annual Janssen Award Symposium, to celebrate how far understanding of the autophagy process has evolved, and to honor Yoshinori Ohsumi, the researcher responsible for many of the fundamental discoveries in the field.
