On Saturday, November 19th our Department Head, Dr. Janko Nikolich-Žugich, will be named the Chair of the Biological Section of the Gerontological Society of America (GSA)! The GSA is the oldest and largest interdisciplinary organization devoted to research, education, and practice in the field of aging. GSA’s principal mission — and that of our 5,500 members — is to advance the study of aging and disseminate information among scientists, decision-makers, and the general public.
This is a huge honor and we are so very excited for Dr. Nikolich-Žugich! As a Chair, he will be in charge of organizing the GSA-hoster International Congress of Gerontology and Geriatrics in San Francisco in July 2017! So stay tuned for more information!
