Who are we ?
Established in 2011 by the International Association of Gerontology and Geriatrics (www.iagg.info), the Global Aging Research Network (GARN) gets together the world’s best research centers dedicated to biological, behavioral and clinical Gerontology. The Network aims to:
• foster scientific development in geriatrics and gerontology around the world,
• develop an international research capacity in Aging,
• disseminate the latest research findings,
• promote education of future actors who dedicate their everyday work to older people.
IAGG GARN ACTIONS
The actions are realized in cooperation with academics and researchers who bring their expertise and last results on key geriatric issues such as nutrition, sarcopenia, frailty, Alzheimer's disease prevention, dementia, nursing home research etc. Stimulating collaborative exchanges among its members, and communicating on important age-related issues are provided by:
• organizing workshops, symposium and conferences,
• submitting consensus papers for publication,
• supporting the Journal of Frailty and Aging (JFA), the Journal on Prevention of Alzheimer's Disease (JPAD) and the Journal on Aging Research and Clinical Practice (JARCP)
• disseminating information via communication tools, internet, Newsletters, web applications etc.
