Alliance for Aging Research and American Aging Association Agree to Complementary Efforts to Support Research into Human Aging

July 3, 2013

Washington, DC - The Alliance for Aging Research and the American Aging Association today announced a strategic alliance to share resources drawing greater attention to promising research to slow, prevent and cure the diseases of aging.

The Alliance for Aging Research will provide staff and administrative support for the American Aging Association, known as AGE, to grow the group’s membership and will supervise the Awards and Memorial Funds programs of AGE. The AGE organization has contracted the Alliance to plan and carry out its annual meeting, which will take place May 30-June 2 next year in San Antonio, Texas.

Both organizations will remain autonomous.

Dan Perry, President of the Alliance, said, “This collaboration joins complementary resources of two organizations helping to add to the strength of scientific efforts in aging research.”

Janko Nikolich-Zugich, MD, Ph.D., Chairman of AGE noted, “Connecting the research and the leaders in aging with the Alliance for Aging Research will increase the impact of AGE as an organization and draw attention and support for the important work of our scientists pursuing better answers to the challenges of population aging.
