Please join us for this 5th Annual Symposium on Aging Research. This UTHealth symposium will be held virtually via Webex on October 26, 2021 from 9:00 a.m.-4:00 p.m. Registration must be completed via Webex. A major goal for the symposium is to highlight the ongoing translational aging research at UTHealth and to help foster the development of emerging technologies. The featured Keynote speaker , Alan S. Green, MD will present on “Theory of Anti-Aging Medicine”. The event will feature a $10,000 Pitch Proposal contest supported by the Harry E. Bovay Jr. Foundation. The pitch projects should be early stage, innovative aging-related proposals that require collaboration to convert to a successful and promising endeavor. Visit our website at https://www.uth.edu/aging/research/research-grants.htm for more information on proposal submission.

Evaluators will select the top three finalists based on innovation and potential impact. These finalists will present a short 10-minute presentation at the Symposium. The audience will then vote on the final winner to receive a $10,000 seed grant.
