Lifelong learning contributes to healthy aging!

6 part lecture series

Generously funded by the Navigage Foundation.

The Buck Institute offered another series of 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 met weekly online using Zoom for lectures and discussions with experts from across the institute. Join our mailing list to stay informed on the next series offered.
