About the Conferences
The three-year U13 Bedside to Bench conference grant is a cooperative effort between the National Institute on Aging and the American Geriatrics Society.
The mission of these conferences remains to heighten research attention on geriatrics issues that are of pressing clinical concern and have the potential to greatly improve clinical care or prevention for older adults. Our long-range goal is to translate research results into clinical care that will improve health outcomes in older adults.
The topics, Delirium, Sleep Problems and Urinary Incontinence are being addressed since these common geriatric syndromes share many characteristics and have not yet been covered in this series. Collectively, these conferences will move forward key fields in geriatric medicine by fostering interdisciplinary research collaborations, while also promoting the development of innovative research with high bench to bedside potential.
