Course Information

Frontiers in Aging and Regeneration Research (FrARR): Translating MSTEM in Aging Research from the Lab to the Clinic and Beyond, trains and mentors promising junior and senior undergraduates from predominately under-represented communities in sophisticated aging research and regenerative medicine technologies, and encourages and supports them as they embark on graduate studies in MSTEM fields.

This NIH/NIA sponsored course is designed for junior and senior undergraduates who seek to develop into independent scientists, physicians or Ph.D. investigators and are both passionate about research careers in aging and regeneration and well prepared to build on their existing skills in MSTEM

FrARR offers dynamic training courses and career advancement strategies that provide a fresh series of daily lecturers on emerging concepts, followed by extended discussions, laboratory research, technologically intense workshops and informal seminars over week-long periods.  These courses are offered at Xavier University of Louisiana and Morehouse School of Medicine.
