Description: Geroscience Interest Group

The Geroscience Interest Group (GSIG) cordially invites you to the seminar listed above. Dr. Kirkland is Professor of Medicine and Physiology and Director of the Robert and Arlene Kogod Center on Aging at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota. His research interests include the effect of aging on preadipocyte differentiation and function, and the role of fat tissue on age-related dysfunction, lifespan and healthspan. His recent paper in Nature, describing amelioration of several age-related phenotypes in mice after removal of senescent cells, gained considerable media attention and was selected by Science among the top 10 discoveries of 2011. In addition to this work, Dr. Kirkland will talk more extensively on the role of aging biology as the major risk factor for most chronic diseases.

The Geroscience Interest Group (GSIG) is a newly formed trans-NIH group aimed at enhancing opportunities for discussion of the intersection between the biology of aging and the biology of diseases and conditions that are of interest across ICs. It is focused on basic biology, but with a longer view towards translation. If you are interested in learning more, please visit the GSIG web site
