By CEO James Appleby, BSPharm, MPH

GSA turns 78 on May 18! We refer to this date as our annual Founders Day in honor of the pioneers who signed our Society’s certificate of incorporation in 1945. And in recognition of this milestone, GSA has set up a way for all members to support the next generation of researchers — by contributing to one or more of the section designated Emerging Scholar funds dedicated solely to student, post doc, trainee and emerging scholar travel grants to participate in the GSA Annual Scientific Meeting. We ask for your help in contributing to these funds.

NIH’s Geroscience Summit Returns: Register Now!

By CEO James Appleby, BSPharm, MPH

The National Institutes of Health (NIH) Geroscience Interest Group and the National Institute on Aging are currently welcoming registrants for their Fourth Geroscience Summit, with the theme “Geroscience for the Next Generation.”

This will be a hybrid event April 24 to 26. The in-person activities will take place on the NIH campus in Bethesda, Maryland. GSA served as a partner on the first geroscience summit in 2013, and it’s great to see it thrive a decade later. As the organizers say, “geroscience is a rapidly growing field of research through which scientists aim to develop interventions that may slow down or stop the functional decline and reduce the burden of disease that often take place with aging.”
