BUSSE RESEARCH AWARDS
This award is supported
by an endowment that secures its continuity. It recognises Dr. Ewald W.
Busse, President of IAG (1985-1989), for his outstanding contributions
to gerontological research over three decades.
The Award is presented to two
junior or mid-career researchers, one from the biomedical sciences and
the other from the social/ behavioural sciences. Awardees are required
to present a lecture based on their research. The proposal to establish
the award was made by the Center for the Study of Aging and Human Development
at Duke University which coordinates the call for nominations and selection
Busse awards are given every
two years, in conjunction with the Pan-American Congress and the World Congress of Gerontology. For information about
