Description: GeroScience Interest Group

The Trans-NIH GeroScience Interest Group (GSIG) cordially invites you to its spring seminar, featuring Dr. Luigi Ferrucci. Dr. Ferrucci is a geriatrician and epidemiologist who conducts research on the causal pathways leading to progressive physical and cognitive decline in older persons. Dr. Ferrucci has made major contributions in the design of many epidemiological studies conducted in the U.S. and in Europe, including the European Longitudinal Study on Aging, the "ICare Dicomano Study," the AKEA study of Centenarians in Sardinia and the Women's Health and Aging Study. He was also the Principal Investigator of the InCHIANTI study, a longitudinal study conducted in the Chianti Geographical area (Tuscany, Italy). After serving for several years as Director of the Baltimore Longitudinal Study on Aging (BLSA). Dr. Ferrucci became the Scientific Director of the NIA’s Intramural Research Program in 2011.

The GeroScience Interest Group (GSIG) was formed to enhance opportunities for discussion of the intersection between the biology of aging and the biology of disease and conditions that are of interest across ICs. It is focused on basic biology, but with a longer view towards translation.
