Stanford's Carstensen to receive GSA's 2006 Distinguished Career Contribution to Gerontology Award

The Gerontological Society of America has chosen Laura L. Carstensen of Stanford University to receive its 2006 Award for the Distinguished Career Contribution to Gerontology. This prize is given annually to an individual whose theoretical contributions have helped bring about a new synthesis and perspective or have yielded original and elegant research designs addressing a significant problem in the literature.

The award presentation will take place at GSA's 59th Annual Scientific Meeting, which will be held from November 16th-20th, 2006 in Dallas, TX. The actual conferral will occur on Saturday the 18th at 12:15 p.m. at the Adam's Mark Dallas Hotel. The meeting is organized to foster interdisciplinary interactions among clinical, administrative, and research professionals in the field of gerontology.

Carstensen's theoretical advances in the field of psychology and aging have defined and continue to shape the study of social and emotional processes. Calling attention to the changing meanings of time and investigating how these changes affect motivation and behavior in a centrally important life domain - social relationships - has been one of her greatest achievements. Her work has offered a compelling alternative explanation for the age-related declines in social involvement that have been documented for decades in gerontology

To be eligible for the Career Contribution Award, papers must have been published within the past five years by a GSA member in the Behavior and Social Sciences section.
