PROGRAMS

GLENN CENTER SEED GRANTS PROGRAM

The Glenn Center at Stanford issues Requests for Applications (RFAs) to invite Stanford faculty to apply for two-year seed grants. The main goals are to expand the scope of aging research at Stanford, to provide support for nascent projects in order to allow them to mature to the stage at which extramural funding may be sought, and to recruit new investigators into the area of aging research. RFAs are announced to all eligible faculty and the details of any current RFA and of past recipients are found on this page.

FRONTIERS IN AGING SEMINAR SERIES

The Glenn Center at Stanford hosts a monthly seminar series titled “Frontiers in Aging” and featuring researchers in the biology of aging from around the world. Invited speakers spend the day at Stanford, meeting with investigators and trainees and delivering an open lecture to the Stanford community.

GLENN SYMPOSIA ON AGING RESEARCH

The Glenn Center at Stanford sponsors symposia in which three prominent researchers in aging from around the world are invited to  spend the day at Stanford and meet with investigators across the campus. The Symposium is widely attended by the Stanford community and provides an opportunity to highlight cutting edge aging research in an afternoon symposium.

TEACHING AND OUTREACH

Teaching and training the next generation of researchers in aging is a central mission of the Glenn Center for the Biology of Aging at Stanford. Toward this end, Glenn Center faculty members participate in a wide range of educational activities to increase the exposure of students at all levels to advances in the biology of aging.

Educational Outreach

In addition to formal teaching and training within the academic community, investigators in the Glenn Center are committed to education of the public with regard to fundamental concepts of the importance of aging research and to share their enthusiasm for the advance in the field. Toward that end, Glenn Center scientists routinely participate in lectures and discussion sessions in which members of the public can hear about advances in aging research and engage in discussions with investigators actively engaged in studies of aging and age-related diseases.

For the Stanford Mini-Medical School curriculum Glenn Center researchers spoke about their research to the interested public:

BAY AREA AGING MEETING (BAAM)

The Bay Area Aging Club was initiated by researchers in aging from Stanford, UCSF, UC Berkeley, and the Buck Institute on Aging in order to provide a regular forum for investigators to gather, present their most recent findings, and exchanges ideas . This has become a bi-annual event that is actively supported by the Glenn Foundation for Medical Research and attended by Glenn Center investigators.
