2018 Spring Speaker Series

On behalf of the community of gerontologists at the University of Washington, I invite you to join us Thursdays for our annual Basic Biology of Aging Series. The 2018 Series is jointly sponsored by the UW Nathan Shock Center of Excellence in the Basic Biology of Aging, the Genetic Approaches to Aging Training Grant, and the UW Healthy Aging and Longevity Research Institute (HALo).

The purpose of the seminar series is to engender enthusiasm, new ideas, and research in the biology of aging for the benefit of the community of students and faculty in the Seattle area. This is a special seminar series, inter-departmental and University-wide. Our goal is to bring to the University of Washington speakers of the highest caliber of excellence and international reputation.
