The Future of Aging Research

  • Founded
    2014
  • Seminar Number
    775

Now in it’s third year, University Seminar 775 “The Future of Aging Research” explores the range and limits of the modifiability of aging.  The subtopic for 2017 is “stress” as a fundamental mechanism of life and driver of aging.  Frances Champagne, Associate Professor in the Department of Psychology, kicked of this topic with her talk “Lasting Biological Impact of Stress” building on a prior session that featured Steve Horvath of UCLA and his DNA Methylation Clock.  As discussant, Jennifer Manly, Associate Professor in Neuropsychology, probed the core faculty about how to operationalize stress for disparities research and an examination of how socioeconomic status is linked to health and thereby to aging.  “The Future of Aging Research” is chaired by Columbia faculty members Jennifer Manly, Martin Picard and Kavita Sivaramakrishnan.
