presented the second Dr. Norman Orentreich Award for Young Investigator on Aging to Dr. Cristal Hill of the Pennington Biomedical Research Center (Baton Rouge, La., USA). The award was presented at the AGE 2021 Annual Hybrid Meeting Event, Madison, Wisc. With this award, we hope to inspire young investigators to continue aging research and to acknowledge the potential of their work. Cristal was selected for her presentation: “Age-related neuroprotection by dietary restriction requires OXR1-mediated retromer function”. In addition to the $1,000 prize, Cristal was invited to present at the 2021 OFAS Symposium on Healthy Aging.
