University of Minnesota's Warner wins GSA's 2005 Donald P. Kent Award

The Gerontological Society of America has chosen Dr. Huber Warner of the University of Minnesota as the 2005 recipient of the Donald P. Kent Award. This distinguished honor is given annually to a GSA member who best exemplifies the highest standards for professional leadership in gerontology through teaching, service, and interpretation of gerontology to the larger society.

The award presentation will take place at GSA's 58th Annual Scientific Meeting, which will be held from November 18th-22nd, 2005 in Orlando, FL. The actual conferral will occur on Saturday the 19th at 12:15 p.m. at the Orlando World Center Marriott Resort. The meeting is organized to foster interdisciplinary interactions among clinical, administrative, and research professionals in the field of gerontology.

Warner, a GSA fellow, currently serves as Associate Dean of Research in the University of Minnesota's College of Biological Sciences. Previously he held the National Institutes on Aging's highest possible administrative position in the basic biology of aging, serving as the associate director responsible for the extramural biology of aging program. In that role he advocated for basic research, coordinated new funding programs for aging research, and managed a $100,000,000+ budget.

One of Huber's greatest career achievements was to initiate a series of program announcements and requests for applications that have brought together the sub-fields of cellular and sub-cellular research with whole organ or organism physiology. He also helped initiate the Intervention Testing Program, an endeavor which seeks to close the gap between basic science and the informal applied approach to intervening in the aging process.

The Kent award was created in 1973 in memory of Donald P. Kent for his outstanding leadership in translating research findings into practical use. The winner traditionally presents a lecture at the Annual Scientific Meeting the following year. The Kent Lec
