The San Antonio Nathan Shock Center was one of the original Shock Centers founded by the NIH National Institute on Aging in 1995. The Center is a national resource that provides a state-of-the-art scientific infrastructure and services used in the development and study of rodent models to address questions about the basic biological mechanisms of aging. The Center also promotes the scientific study of aging by sponsoring seminars, journal club meetings, its Annual Conference on Aging, and pilot grant awards focused on the basic biology of aging.
