The highly competitive program - formerly called the Summer Institute on Aging Research - will be held Aug.4-8 in Bethesda, Md. It includes lectures, seminars and small-group discussions in research design related to aging, including aging issues involving ethnic and racial minorities.
Lectures will cover topics in aging research, including the biology of aging; genetics and Alzheimer's disease; and health, behavior and aging. Discussion sessions will focus on methodological approaches and interventions.
The program also will include consultation on the development of research interests and advice on preparing and submitting research grant applications to NIA.
The program is sponsored by NIA with support from the National Hartford Centers of Gerontological Nursing Excellence.
