Resnick Gerontology Center

Medical Student Research

The Resnick Gerontology Center actively encourages medical students to participate in aging-related research – by identifying research mentors (Montefiore Einstein senior and junior faculty) and funding opportunities.

Since 2013, the Center also sponsors a competitive Resnick Medical Student Research Award, which is awarded to 1-2 students at the annual Resnick Winter Symposium in December.

Applications are due in November; for additional information contact: Helena Blumen, PhD, Co-Director.
