Why and how they got there, and where Aging is heading
An informal chat between trainees and leaders in the field
We are pleased to present the second session of The Alliance for Healthy Aging’s new series of Lunch with the Experts’ talks. Where every second Wednesday of the month, Trainees, Graduate Students, and Post-Docs can meet Faculty members for an informal discussion on science, career paths and anything exciting.
Guests will give a short talk on how they got to where they are, followed by an audience discussion and finishing with where they think the field is heading or what the ‘Next Big Thing’ is.
Join the Slack Channel (tinyurl.com/AHAtalks-join) for updates on presentations, questions and discussion during the talk, and a chance to talk with other researchers at Alliance centres.
We are pleased to present:
