The members of the American Aging Association are an elite group of scientific experts in the field of biogerontology and geroscience, dedicated to understanding the basic mechanisms of aging in order to enable humankind to preserve and restore functions typically lost to age-related degeneration, and to extend the healthy human lifespan. Become a member here.
The American Aging Association is committed to providing a harmonious conference environment based on mutual respect, dignity and support. All forms of harassment, including sexual, are completely unacceptable. These behaviors have no place in the American Aging Association, and do not represent who we are. It is our collective priority to prevent this abhorrent behavior and to support those affected. We ensure allegations of sexual harassment are responded to swiftly, appropriately, and confidentially.

The American Aging Association recognizes a crucial, compelling need to promote diversity in the aging research workforce. The American Aging Association is committed to fostering a diverse workforce in aging research, and to ensuring that people from all backgrounds can fully and productively participate in our field. We have outlined and are executing specific plans to help diversify the aging research workforce, designed to develop and prepare the most talented researchers from all groups, to help improve the quality of the educational and training environment, and to enhance the participation of individuals currently underrepresented in the field of aging research.
