The NIH Geroscience Interest Group (GSIG) will hold a summit titled Advances in Geroscience: Impact on Healthspan and Chronic Disease at the Natcher Conference Center on the NIH campus. The summit is being developed by the GSIG in partnership with the Alliance for Aging Research and The Gerontological Society of America (GSA).


The summit will bring together scientific experts in the fields of aging biology and chronic disease from NIH Institutes and Centers, as well as leading academic institutions, to examine how aging itself contributes to disease and how advanced knowledge and successful translation of research has the potential to delay the main processes of aging and subsequently the onset of chronic diseases common in older individuals. The summit will also include a session on opportunities for additional trans-NIH collaboration. Hill staff, agency officials, representatives of national aging and disease advocacy organizations, and young investigators are encouraged to attend.


The summit program was developed by the Trans-NIH GeroScience Interest Group (GSIG) at the U.S. National Institutes of Health. The GSIG, a recently formed group focused on the relationships between aging and age-related disease and disability, is now among the largest trans-NIH interest groups.
