The first publication from a student of the Research Master Gerontological Sciences is a fact!

The Research Master in Gerontological Sciences (°2019-2020) offers a specific training trajectory to those excellent students who want to build up an academic career in the field of Gerontology. During this 2-year academic training the students have to write a systematic review, an original research article and a research proposal on a gerontological topic.
