- Third Annual CALERIE Research Network Workshop
The 3rd CALERIE Research Network Workshop will be held in Alexandria, VA on Friday, May 10.
The overall CALERIE Research Network Workshop goal is to generate interest in CALERIE-based ancillary studies by demonstrating the wealth and accessibility of CALERIE data and samples. This year the proposed agenda will be designed around developing the Working Group plans we started to develop last year with the goal of creating funding proposals for Workshop participants: working singly or in groups, for Network pilot funding, or going for the R01-level grant.
In addition to the topics for our established working groups on:
- miRNA, epigenetics, and DNA Methylation
- Circadian Rhythm
- Behavioral interventions
we are interested in furthering research ideas focused on the following three areas:
- Long-term follow-up studies
- Developing interactions with other intervention study biorepositories that can help us validate molecular findings discovered in CALERIE and the converse
- Studies involving cross-species studies of the same CALERIE-related questions in both human and animal studies
If you or a colleague are interested in attending this year’s Workshop, please contact Kim M. Huffman, MD at email@example.com.
CALERIE CTS database Webinar "Behavioral Aspects of Sustained Calorie Restriction in Humans"
July 13, 1 PM CST/2 PM EST
The CALERIE trial employed intensive behavioral strategies to enhance CR adherence. The Computerized Tracking System (CTS) adherence strategies and data set was established to track adherence to CR and to guide individualized counseling sessions in the form of toolbox options. These features make the CALERIE data sets a valuable research resource for investigating various hypotheses about the behavioral aspects of sustained CR intervention. Dr. Corby Martin will lead the webinar which will provide information relevant to the recently announced NIA funding opportunities.
