News & Notes

Congratulations to the four Duke investigators who were selected as Rising Stars for the upcoming AGS/NIA Conference “Overview of the Resilience World.” This is especially exciting and impressive since the conference only selected a maximum of 12 Rising Stars from across the whole country!  This is a testament to the national powerhouse that Duke has become in resilience research, and shows the strength of NIH-funded Centers in promoting strong early stage investigators in aging research from many fields and disciplines.

AGS/NIA 2022 Resilience Research Rising Stars:

  • Leah Acker (Pepper Center Scholar)
  • Kimberly Hreha (Pepper Center Scholar)
  • Kathy Ramos (Roybal Scholar)
  • Hanzhang Xu (REACH Equity Scholar)
