Gerontology Research Collaborative (GRC)

About the GRC

The Gerontology Research Collaborative (GRC) is a group of researchers doing work in gerontology from the UC San Diego and other institutions in the area — incl. Sanford Burnham Prebys, Salk, San Diego State University (SDSU). These researchers wish to exchange ideas for collaborations, create working groups surrounding research themes (e.g. physical activity, biomarkers of aging, disparities, cognition, epidemiology, technology), and to host events for the broader San Diego region.

The GRC intends to be as inclusive as possible, bringing together researchers with a variety of backgrounds including basic science, translational research, clinical practice, mental health, public health, and related disciplines.


GRC Seminars

As a part of this group, we hold a monthly GRC Seminar series to highlight local gerontology research. Formats vary from seminars by local faculty, short talks from early-stage investigators (postdocs, fellows and students), and invited presentations by leading gerontologists. In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, we moved GRC Seminars to a virtual webinar format.
