Founded 1965, Paul F. Glenn introduced the mission of the Glenn Foundation For Medical Research to extend the healthy years of life through research on mechanisms of biology that govern normal human aging and its related physiological decline, with the objective of translating research into interventions that will extend healthspan with lifespan.  Click here to explore centers!

Diversity and Inclusion Fosters Innovation

US academic science lacks racial, ethnic, sex, gender, disability, and socioeconomic diversity. Addressing this problem is essential to drive scientific progress but is confounded by broad misunderstandings regarding diverse groups. Increasing representation in science is particularly relevant in geroscience, where our research to maximize healthy human lifespan must also address existing racial and socioeconomic health disparities. The American Aging Association (AGE) is committed to addressing these issues as part of its larger mission to advance and promote geroscience research.                                                                                                              excerpt


AGE at ABRCMS 2019

In November, AGE Trainee Chair Mitchell Lee (UW) and trainee member Dibyadeep Datta (Yale) represented AGE at the Annual Biomedical Research Conference for Minority Students (ABRCMS) at the  Anaheim Convention Center, CA.The major goal of the trip was to identify trainees interested in submitting an abstract and applying for one of our 18 trainee travel awards (three of which are specifically for trainees from underrepresented groups in the sciences) to attend the upcoming 49th Annual AGE meeting in Madison, WI. At ABRCMS, Mitchell and Dibyadeep met numerous excited, highly motivated students that were very interested in learning about the biology of aging. In fact, many attendees learned about the biology of aging and geroscience for the first time through our outreach!   

We look forward to growing future outreach opportunities and are looking for more interested AGE Trainees to help lead our next trip! We’d like to give a special thanks to the University of Washington Nathan Shock Center for providing travel funds to sponsor this event.
