The goal of this symposium is to openly share stories of failures in aging research and lessons learned to build resilience and promote an ongoing culture of mutual support through AGS. Learning Objectives: (1) adopt a growth mindset to recognize that scientific progress is built on failures and setbacks and to see them as opportunities for growth; (2) connect with researchers in aging through personal stories of persistence with embarking on new research questions, obtaining research funding, and adapting in response to disappointing research results; (3) identify strategies to build persistence and resilience in response to failure; and (4) find the courage to show vulnerability and share your own stories of failure and resilience with colleagues and mentees.
