Title: Caloric Restriction Studies in Humans: Future Research Directions
The Trans-NIH Geroscience Interest Group (GSIG) cordially invites you to its spring seminar, featuring John Speakman. Professor Speakman is a biologist at the University of Aberdeen Institute of Biological and Environmental Sciences in the U.K., where he directs the University’s Energetics Research Group. The internationally renowned Dr. Speakman will discuss nutritional influences on aging, with a focus on caloric restriction, and improving knowledge in the area of the biology of aging.
The Geroscience Interest Group (GSIG) was formed to enhance opportunities for discussion of the intersection between the biology of aging and the biology of disease and conditions that are of interest across ICs. It is focused on basic biology, but with a longer view towards translation.
