Thank Yous

Thank you so much to Gabriel, Bronwyn, Laura, Lucta, Kristen, and Simon for your fantastic proposal presentations. It was so wonderful to see where your journey is leading. Kristen, great job on your journal club presentation! 

Thank you to University of Toledo’s Beta Beta Beta club for hosting our Director of Academic Affairs, Lilli, and past summer student Anagaa for a recruiting event, and also for hosting talks from Amutha and Amit this past month – it was wonderful to see our scientific interests coming together! Also special thanks to the Oxford Society of Ageing and Longevity for facilitating a recruiting talk by Lilli. We can’t wait to see these attendees turn into applications!


Ongoing Programs

The Sponsor a Student campaign is still ongoing! Please encourage people to sponsor our brilliant students and increase our reach. We love connecting students to labs to fuel the mission to end age related disease, but we also love transforming the lives and careers of young people. The investment in these students will ensure that the brightest minds, the best scientists, and the most influential leaders know that aging is not an absolute – we can combat aging and live healthier for longer!

Perks include:

  • A designated student sponsorship is named in your honor for the 2024 summer or 2023-2024 school year.
  • Admission for 2 to SRF’s education sponsors event April 4th-6th, 2024, in the San Francisco Bay area.
  • Two tickets to SRF’s annual scientific conference, Ending Aging Forum.
  • Postbaccalaureate sponsors will receive virtual invites to the sponsored student’s final presentation.
  • Your name is displayed on a plaque in our Research Center.
