Anderson to receive GSA's 2013 Nathan Shock New Investigator Award

The Gerontological Society of America (GSA) the nation's largest interdisciplinary organization devoted to the field of aging has chosen Rozalyn M. Anderson, PhD, of the University of Wisconsin-Madison as the 2013 recipient of the Nathan Shock New Investigator Award.

The distinguished honor is given for outstanding contributions to new knowledge about aging through basic biological research. It was established in 1986 to honor Nathan Shock, PhD, a founding member of GSA and pioneer in gerontological research at the National Institutes of Health.

The award presentation will take place at GSA's 66th Annual Scientific Meeting, which will be held from November 20 to 24 in New Orleans. This conference is organized to foster interdisciplinary collaboration among researchers, educators, and practitioners who specialize in the study of the aging process. Visit for further details.

Anderson is an assistant professor of medicine at the University of Wisconsin-Madison School of Medicine and Public Health and a health science officer at the William S. Middleton VA Hospital Geriatric Research, Education, and Clinical Center.

Her research investigates the role metabolism plays in creating disease vulnerability. A key component of Anderson's work is determining how caloric restriction (reduced calorie intake without malnutrition) delays aging and the onset of age-associated diseases such as cancer, diabetes, and neurodegenerative disorders.

Anderson earned her doctoral degree in biochemistry from University College Dublin.
