Center for Research on Aging
The University of Maryland School of Medicine Center for Research on Aging was established in 1998 under the leadership of Andrew P. Goldberg, MD, and Jay S. Magaziner, PhD, MSHyg. Dr. Magaziner assumed sole leadership of the Center in 2015 when Dr. Goldberg retired from the University of Maryland. Since then Dr. Magaziner has continued to shape the Center's directions and successfully expanded membership to 151 affiliates including 19 leaders from all schools across campus, UMBC, UMCP, and the Baltimore VA Medical Center.
The Center coordinates research and research training in those areas of gerontology that transcend traditional disciplinary lines and are amenable to an interdisciplinary approach to critical issues in aging research. It interfaces with the University's existing efforts in gerontology and geriatric medicine to develop research, educational and clinical programs that nurture and expand research and research funding in aging.
POSTPONED - 2nd Annual Aging Symposium
Due to the recent COVID 19 outbreak, the 2nd Annual Aging Symposium scheduled for April 24th is postponed. It is our hope, that we can reschedule this event in the future.
We feel it is important that the hard work and research completed by both students and faculty be shared with others in order to promote discussion and develop into possible collaborations. Therefore, we will be compiling abstracts in an online and/or published format that we will distribute to members of our Center for Research on Aging Center as well as others on campus and those who registered to attend the Symposium. This format will also allow students to include this event on their CV.
At this time, we are encouraging submissions of both revisions of already submitted abstracts AND new abstracts to include in our booklet. Students and faculty should submit their abstracts no later than Monday, April 13. Notifications of accepted abstracts will be sent the week of April 27, 2020.
