National Institute on Aging, a Division of NIH, wants YOU!
The National Institute on Aging, National Institutes of Health has fellowships and postdoctoral positions!
Representatives want graduate students from UMBC. Your research might be applicable to issues in aging.
·Are you interested in cutting edge biomedical research?
·Do you want to do research at the world’s premier research institution?
·Do you want to further the understanding of Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, diabetes, cancer, cardiovascular disorders, obesity and more?
Come to an information session on research training opportunities at the National Institutes of Health with Arlene Jackson & Jaron Lockett, Ph.D. with the National Institute on Aging.
The NIA’s research programs include scientific disciplines like
biochemistry, cell and molecular biology, genetics, immunology,
neuroscience, behavioral sciences and epidemiology, as well as medical
disciplines including neurobiology, endocrinology, cardiology,
hematology, oncology, and gerontology. The central focus of our research
is understanding the changes associated with healthy aging and to
define the criteria for evaluating when a change becomes pathological.
Thus, not only are the common age-related diseases under study (e.g.,
Alzheimer’s Disease, stroke, atherosclerosis, diabetes, and cancer), but
the determinants of healthy aging are being defined.
General Presentation will take place from 1:00 – 2:00 pm, and a drop-in session, where you can meet the representatives will take place from 2:00 – 3:00 pm.
Monday, 11/28/11, 1:00 – 3:00 pm, Commons 331
