Centering Contextual Factors to Advance the Science of Aging

Join us Friday Friday June 18th  at 9:00 AM for a conversation with  Dr. Jennifer Manly, of Columbia University. 

Dr. Manly is among the leaders in the field on the mechanisms of disparities in cognitive aging and dementia. Dr. Manly partners with Black and Latinx communities around the country to examine social factors across the life course (education, racism & discrimination, SES, etc. ) and how these factors relate to cognition and brain health in later life.

This topic is germane to all basic science, animal, and human researchers, in order to assist us in adequately appraising the status of ongoing clinical research in humans and implement new models moving forward.  

The Rigor and Reproducibility Seminar series is jointly hosted by T32 NS082128 directed by Dawn Bowers, PhD. (College of PHHP), and David Vaillancourt (College of HHP) and the UF Health Science Libraries.   To register for this presentation and see upcoming speakers, go to this website:
