Center on Aging Hosts Its First UM-Wide Poster Session
The Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences’ Center on Aging hosted its first University-wide poster session on April 11. More than 50 faculty, post docs and fellows shared important research on cognition, Alzheimer’s disease, depression, novel technologies for assessing everyday functional performance, mental health access and related topics.
Joining the session were researchers in aging from the Departments of Medicine, Microbiology and Immunology, Neurology, Psychology, Molecular and Cellular Pharmacology and Physical Therapy and Rehabilitation, the School of Nursing and Health Studies and the Evelyn F. McKnight Brain Institute.
“The poster session was overwhelmingly successful and provided an opportunity for researchers across the University to showcase their work,” said Sara J. Czaja, Ph.D., professor of psychiatry and behavioral sciences, and Scientific Director of the Center on Aging. “It was also a great opportunity to foster conversations among people doing research in aging and open up new avenues for collaboration.”
