The Gordon-Kenan Research Seminar on Aging, Biology Of is a unique forum for graduate students, post-docs, and other scientists with comparable levels of experience and education to present and exchange new data and cutting edge ideas.
The focus of this meeting will be to congregate an outstanding and diverse group of young investigators (graduate students and postdoctoral fellows) at the forefront of aging research. Through an informal ‘Beyond the Ph.D.’ session, this GKRS will also provide young researchers with valuable career advice from senior experts in this field.
