About the IOA and CNDR Annual Research Retreat
For almost 20 years, the Institute on Aging (IOA; directed by John Q. Trojanowski, MD, PhD) and the Center for Neurodegenerative Disease Research (CNDR; directed by Virginia M.-Y. Lee, PhD) have held separate annual research retreats. However, because of the close working relationship of the IOA and CNDR, their leadership, shared interests of the members of the IOA and CNDR, as well as the proliferation of Center and Institute retreats at Penn over the recent years, it was decided that the IOA and CNDR should join forces.
The goal is to synergistically combine the focus and themes of the IOA — all things related to aging — and CNDR — aging-related neurodegenerative diseases — and formally take advantage of the unique strengths in the IOA and CNDR to put forward a novel meeting concept.
