Epidemiology and Biostatistics of Aging Research-in-Progress Meetings
Contact: Brian Buta, or 410-502-3412

The bi-weekly EBA Research in Progress meetings involve trainees, faculty members and others in the Johns Hopkins Medical Institutions interested in aging and health. The sessions serve to develop trainees’ critical thinking, oral communication skills and knowledge of issues integral to aging research and career development. Each trainee presents an annual formal seminar during his or her training period. These meetings provide a successful forum for students and faculty to report their research, learn methods for presentation of research, offer and receive research feedback, and discuss quantitative methods and prominent publications informally. The events are also a forum to generate collaborations across disciplines and projects have resulted in jointly authored manuscripts. These meetings also include information on general research skill development (how to develop a hypothesis, write an abstract, how to work with people in other disciplines, etc.) and career development (preparing for a career and looking for a job).
