AFAR is pleased to announce the launch www.rccn-aging.org--a new website for the National Institute on Aging’s Research Centers Collaborative Network (RCCN), which AFAR co-manages with Wake Forest School of Medicine.

The website supports dissemination efforts to connect scientists from six NIA center programs focused on addressing a wide range of issues affecting older adults.

The site shares the news from the field of aging research as well as opportunities such as grant deadlines, events, and meetings, including Webinars and Conferences organized by the RCCN.

Visitors also can connect with the six NIA center programs, and their Coordinating Centers, in the RCCN:

• Alzheimer’s Disease Research Centers, focused on neuroscience. The University of Washington serves as coordinating center for this program.

• Centers on the Demography and Economics of Aging, focused on behavioral and social research. The University of Michigan serves as coordinating center for this program.

• Nathan Shock Centers for Excellence in the Basic Biology of Aging, focused on the pursuit of basic research in the biology of aging. AFAR serves as the coordinating center for this program.

• Claude D. Pepper Older American Independence Centers (OAICS), focused on geriatrics and gerontology. Wake Forest School of Medicine serves as the coordinating center for this program.

• Resource Centers for Minority Aging Research, focused on behavioral and social research. UCLA serves as coordinating center for this program.

• Roybal Centers for Translational Research on Aging, focused on behavioral and social research. The University of Illinois at Chicago currently serves as interim coordinating center.

The website will also feature tools to help point persons interested in collaborating across center program boundaries to find the appropriate scientists and resources.
