Lifelong learning contributes to healthy aging!

Event Registration

The Buck Institute is excited to offer our  Lifelong Learning course on the Biology of Aging. This course is intended for a non-scientific audience to get the inside scoop on the exciting science going on at the Buck and in labs across the world. We will meet weekly in the Learning Center for lectures and discussions with experts from across the institute. 

Week 1: Past, Present, and Future of Aging Research
Guest instructor: Gordon Lithgow, PhD, Professor and Vice President, Academic Affairs

Week 2: Basic Biology Refresher
Guest instructor: Barbara Bailus, PhD, Postdoctoral Fellow, Ellerby lab

Week 3:  Science and Aging in the Media
Guest instructor: Kris Rebillot, Director of Communications

Week 4: Biologic Basis of Aging
Guest instructor: Mark Watson, PhD, Postdoctoral Fellow, Brand lab and Abhijit Kale, PhD, Postdoctoral Fellow, Campisi lab

Week 5: Age-Related Diseases
Guest instructor: Mark Watson, PhD, Postdoctoral Fellow, Brand lab

Week 6: Moving Aging Research Toward Clinical Applications
Guest instructor: John Newman, MD, PhD, Assistant Professor and a practicing geriatrician at UCSF and San Francisco VA Medical Center

While we will touch on healthy aging strategies each week, this course primarily focuses on basic scientific research and not on medical or lifestyle advice.

Space is limited to 35 and demand is extremely high, so please only register if you can commit to at least 5 of the 6 weeks. 

The course is made possible by a generous grant from the Navigage Foundation.
