The Aging and Resilience Seminar Series is designed to facilitate aging research and to foster new generations of investigators at the University of Arizona to address significant aging research questions. The seminar will bring UA researchers together to create synergies by sharing research findings and research plans. The series will also provide opportunities for UA researchers to meet and to hear from lead investigators of aging and resilience in other research institutions, specifically Pepper Centers. These activities are the core of the CHiiLi program – the Consortium to Halt Injury and Infection in older adults Leading to Independence.
