This year marks the 30th anniversary of the Alliance for Aging Research. Since our creation in 1986, our story has been unfolding as we’ve worked to advance science and enhance lives.
Our founder, Dan Perry, describes our story this way: “It’s a story of how a small group of people set out to square the curve of human aging. We saw the potential to strengthen human bodies and minds as we age by supporting and energizing scientists who are probing the underlying biology of aging itself. The success of this small nonprofit group over the past three decades proves it is possible for a committed few, with passion and vision, to make a difference so that we might enjoy longer, healthier lives for us all.”
For this edition of Living Longer & Loving It, we are sharing more of that story, including a Q & A with President and CEO Sue Peschin, MHS, as well as a look at how we’ve advanced the cause of science throughout the years.
As we noted in our last issue, leading up to our dinner on September 20, we’ve been featuring a 30-week blog series called Celebrating 30 Years. It’s divided into four sections: Who We Are, The Artifacts Collection, Lives Changed, and Aging in the 21st Century.
