June 2023 - Center for Healthy Aging Inaugural Workshop

In June 2023, the center hosted an internal workshop, which brought together approximately 100 faculty and researchers from all disciplines — across the university, medical center and the Long Island State Veterans Home — to generate creative, multidisciplinary solutions to current challenges confronting aging populations. Two pilot proposals were funded. These proposals took a multidisciplinary approach to advance knowledge in preventing falls and removing senescent cells, two increasingly relevant areas in aging research that support the center’s foundational mission. Building on this momentum, the center plans to host a symposium in the fall of 2023, welcoming community members and speakers to learn more about the center’s progress and long-term plans.
