The Annual Forum on Aging, now in its 24th year, informs gerontology researchers and the community about aging research at UTMB. The Forum on Aging provides an opportunity for faculty, fellows, and students to showcase their research and inform the UTMB community in general about the research on aging going on at UTMB.

It is also a great opportunity for networking and learning more about the research resources available from the Sealy Center on Aging and Research Services. Monetary awards for best student and fellow posters will be given, sponsored by the Sealy Center on Aging and Sigma Xi.
