Recap: The 17th Annual Research on Aging Showcase!

We at COAH want to offer our sincere thanks to everyone who attended and participated in the events of the 17th Annual Research on Aging Showcase on Friday, April 5th. Your presence made the day a huge success!

The day’s event started with an interactive student-led Epi of Aging journal club session.  This was followed by an outstanding Keynote Address by Dr. Claudia Kawas, Professor of Neurology and Neurobiology at the University of California, Irvine, on “Dementia and Resilience in the Oldest Old: The 90+ Study.”  Following the keynote presentation, we held a lively poster competition and networking session, featuring over 30 posters and concluding with awards in both student and professional categories. More information, including the poster winners’ names and poster titles, is available here.

Overall, this annual showcase highlighted the exciting aging research being led by students, fellows, and faculty at Johns Hopkins, University of Maryland, the National Institute on Aging, and beyond.

A special thank you to the poster session judges, the poster presenters, and the showcase organizing committee. Please see above for the gallery of photos from the showcase events.
