Symposium of Organisms with Slow Aging II
When: January 17-18, 2003
Where: Andrus Gerontology Center, University of Southern California

Symposium on Organisms with Slow Aging
When: September, 2000
Where: Andrus Gerontology Center, University of Southern California
About: Hosted by the USC/UCLA Center, SOSA critically examined emerging evidence that some multi-cellular organisms have evolved very slow rates of aging with anti-aging mechanisms that are pertinent to human aging processes. Seventy-five scientists representing 5 countries presented their research on aging in several species of animals, plants, and humans.

Workshop on Cognition & Aging
When: April, 2000
Where: Andrus Gerontology Center, University of Southern California
About: Center researchers held a 1-day workshop on the relationship between cognition and aging based on two center-supported pilot projects. The group included 13 researchers from a number of disciplines.
