In case you missed Dr. Granholm's RESEARCH UPDATE on Healthy Aging and Dementia

On Wednesday, February 27, KIHA hosted more than 80 attendees for Dr. Ann-Charlotte (Lotta) Granholm-Bentley's update on her research on healthy aging and dementia. Dr. Granholm kept the audience engaged with her lively presentation. Click here for a link to the slides from this engaging presentation. 



The Knoebel Institute for Healthy Aging will present monthly Chalk Talks for faculty and students interested in aging. These talks are specifically about current and future work related to aging and are meant to help foster new collaborations between faculty. Our goal is for the faculty to participate both in giving the talks as well as being an active and helpful audience. Faculty can feel free to invite students who are interested in aging. On Tuesday, April 2, Drs. Robin Tinghitella and Shannon Murphy (Biology) will present the research carried out with funding from a KIHA pilot grant. The title of the Chalk Talk is: Effects of maternal and grandmaternal aging on offspring health and longevity. Learn more here.
