Research & Education Scholars Program

Our Program

The Research & Education Scholars Program is created by the Research Education Core which identifies, supports, and nurtures talented junior investigators who will become national leaders in aging research.

The Core’s mentorship and curricular programs help junior investigators progress along the pathways that lead to high impact publications and grant funding that develops the scholar’s national reputation as a leader in their area. Mentoring services, seminar series, and resource core services are also available to investigators whose goals are to develop careers in aging research. A particular focus is junior faculty who have trained outside of geriatric medicine but seek to incorporate Geriatric principles into their developing research program.

The Research Education Component also sponsors a Diversity Supplement Program to increase the number of faculty members from underrepresented and diverse backgrounds conducting aging research at UCSF.
