Medical Student Research in Aging

The Einstein Resnick Gerontology Center actively encourages medical students to participate in basic and clinical aging-related research.

With support from the Director, students identify research mentors (Einstein and Montefiore senior and junior faculty who have been awarded Resnick Center pilot grants), and apply to participate in aging and geriatrics research and clinical programs such as the American Federation of Aging Research (AMFAR) MSTAR program.
