Considerations in the Study of Sex as a Biological Variable in Aging Research

Nathan Shock Centers of Excellence in the Basic Biology of Aging

February 2, 2023 | 4:00-5:00pm ET

This webinar will feature a panel of aging researchers who study sex differences with expertise in omics, human data, behavioral/neurological research, and the Intervention Testing Program. Each panelist will briefly share general considerations for experiments within their area of expertise. After the presentations, there will be a Q&A with the audience.

This webinar will aim to:

  • Share perspectives and ideas on why and how to study sex differences in aging

  • Provide information on how to control experimental design correctly

  • Emphasize how sex differences are an important consideration for experimental design

  • This webinar is recommended for aging researchers who are interested in studying sex differences, as well as aging researchers more generally.
