Aging Across the Lifespan

Aging across the lifespan research focuses on maintaining and improving health, functional status and quality of life. Emphasis is on successful aging, even in the face of morbidity and frailty. Utilizing an interdisciplinary perspective, our programs of research encompass a range of bio-psychosocial approaches, including psychological, cognitive, behavioral, physiological, genetic, sociological, and emerging, integrated models. Research models include racial, ethnic, gender, socio-demographic, and inter-generational influences. Aging research spans descriptive to intervention work and qualitative and quantitative methods.
