Inaugural Virtual Aging Research Conference
The University of Chicago has a history of leading innovative, collaborative research across multiple disciplines and is uniquely positioned to advance knowledge and meaningful interventions in aging science. An assessment of university profiles meeting an “aging” search term revealed more than 350 profiles of individuals with research related to aging. This aging conference will unite these many experts with a common interest in aging, to build new collaborations and to learn about NIA-sponsored aging research centers. Most importantly, participants will have greater insight into the latest research in aging so they can improve their practices as clinicians and researchers.
At the conclusion of this activity, participants will be able to:
- Identify new aging research collaboration opportunities to expand translational aging research;
- Recall National Institute on Aging research center funding opportunities;
- Describe how technology can be used to assess the functional health of older adults;
- State novel clinical and biologic markers that can be used as indicators of function and aging in older adults;
- Discuss how breakthroughs in neurological research are being applied to improve cognition and function in older adults;
- List clinical, community, and policy resources available to support vulnerable older adults;
- Identify existing aging research resources on campus that can assist future investigations.
