For our upcoming RCCN Workshop “Sex and Gender Differences in Aging”, to be held June 6 and 7, 2019 in Marina del Rey, CA, there will be travel awards available for approximately 10 early career investigators or investigators-in-training. Those selected will participate in a special session at the meeting that will focus on career development. The travel awards will cover travel to and from the meeting, meals, and hotel accommodations. Successful applicants will be from institutions with at least one NIA supported center, and who have demonstrated translational or multidisciplinary interests in aging related to the workshop topic. Individuals from underrepresented racial and ethnic groups are particularly encouraged to apply.

The University of Michigan Older Americans Independence Center (UM OAIC; directed by Dr Ray Yung), in collaboration with the Michigan Alzheimer Disease Core Center (MADCC; directed by Dr. Henry Paulson), will be hosting our annual research retreat entitled "Human Research Across the Translational Spectrum: from the Lab to the Real World" in Ann Arbor at the University of Michigan May 25-26, 2017. The focus of this year's retreat will include cognitive disorders as well as aging research. As Director of the UM OAIC Research Career Development Core (RCDC), I am the retreat coordinator. Roger Albin, MADCC Research Education Component Core Director, will be assisting with the research retreat. We would be grateful if you could have junior faculty colleagues who want to participate in this program contact either of us. They should describe how participation would benefit their research, indicate the type of grant to be submitted, and submit a copy of their CV to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
