Alliance for Aging Research Founder Dan Perry Underscores Importance of Geroscience in Journal Article

Alliance for Aging Research founder and board member Dan Perry co-authored an article urging geriatricians and clinical trial researchers, behavioral and social science experts, and economists to advance geroscience-guided discoveries from the bench to clinical care and health policy. The article is titled “Moving geroscience from the bench to clinical care and health policy” and was published in the Journal of the American Geriatrics Society on June 19, 2021.
