Interstellar Initiative: February 2021
Sunday, February 7, 2021, 7:00 AM - Tuesday, February 9, 2021, 11:00 AM EST
The New York Academy of Sciences
The Interstellar Initiative ― presented jointly by the Japan Agency for Medical Research and Development and the New York Academy of Sciences ― recognizes the world’s most promising Early Career Investigators and connects them with peers, in related but distinct disciplines, providing a platform for them to develop a solution to a major research question. The aim is to foster interdisciplinary collaboration and thereby catalyze discovery.
This workshop is a follow-up to the September 2020 workshop, to provide an opportunity for teams to reconnect and further refine their research proposals, with the guidance of mentors.
The 2020-2021 Interstellar Initiative addresses challenges in the area of Healthy Longevity. The focus is on exploring molecular, cellular, genetic, and physiological mechanisms of aging, and the relationship between aging and diseases such as cancers, neurodegenerative, cardiovascular, hormonal disorders, and other chronic age-related conditions with the ultimate goal of improving healthspan and preventing pathological aging.
