Jason DeFreitas, who’ll be joining Falk College this fall as chair and professor in the Department of Exercise Science, is among the second cohort of the Hevolution/AFAR New Investigator Awards in Aging Biology and Geroscience Research, the American Federation for Aging Research (AFAR) announced in April.

DeFreitas and his fellow cohorts are part of a grant program that enables early career investigators with labs in the United States and Canada to advance research projects in basic biology of aging and geroscience projects that pave the way for healthspan-expanding therapeutics and treatments.
