Researchers working to help people live longer and healthier lives will present their findings at the 4th Annual Symposium on Aging Research Tuesday, Oct. 15, at The University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston (UTHeath). This free event is sponsored by the UTHealth Consortium on Aging.
The symposium is open to members of the scientific community and is from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. in the Fayez S. Sarofim Research Building at 1825 Pressler St.
The symposium will highlight translational aging research at UTHealth, according to James Booker, PhD, administrative director of the consortium, and help foster the development of emerging technologies. The symposium is titled “Aging Better and Healthier.”
The keynote speakers include Holly Brown-Borg, PhD, from the University of North Dakota who will present on “Somatotropic Signaling and Metabolism: Impact on Health and Aging,” and Elizabeth Parrish, founder and CEO of BioViva, who will speak on “Gene Therapy to Engineer Healthy Longevity.”
New to the Symposium on Aging Research this year, the Harry E. Bovay, Jr. Foundation Endowment will hold a competition for a $10,000 award to support aging research-focused studies by faculty investigators at UTHealth.
Applicants submitted proposals on aging-related conditions and issues, which have been reviewed by members of the Consortium on Aging Executive Committee. The top three finalists will give a 10-minute presentation at the Annual Symposium on Aging Research, where the audience will vote on the winner.
