Researchers to discuss geriatric surgery

By Carlos Mayorga

Researchers from several colleges and departments will come together Thursday and Friday to discuss the latest research on geriatric surgery for the second annual research retreat sponsored by the U Center on Aging.

The two-day event, which all students and faculty are encouraged to attend, will feature a reception and poster presentation, a keynote address that will discuss diabetes and aging, and a forum for research grant recipients to discuss upcoming projects. The event will be held in the Spencer F. and Cleone P. Eccles Health Sciences Education Building and is open to the public.

“I think any student who is thinking about going into the field will be interested,” said Louise Tonin, an administrative assistant with the Center on Aging.

Students and faculty from a number of programs, including researchers in medicine, geriatrics, social work, psychology and pharmacy, submitted posters covering different aspects of aging that will be presented Thursday from 3:30 p.m. to 6 p.m.

Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 9:30 a.m., a professor in geriatrics from the University of Michigan will deliver the keynote address. Following the speech, the event will wrap up with a presentation by six researchers who received pilot grants from the Center on Aging. The event, which runs from 9:45 a.m. to noon, will host grant recipients who will discuss their projects.

“Last year was very successful, so we’re hoping to have that same success as last year,” Tonin said.
