Aging

senior with care giver
The population of Americans 65 years of age or older is projected to double by 2060. Our faculty are investigating issues related to aging, focusing on the etiology and treatment of diseases, as well as conducting disease surveillance of conditions that are common at older ages. Our research includes studies using originally collected data, prospective datasets and registries, as well as large administrative data sets. We use rigorous methods, including qualitative and quantitative analyses, as well as multimodal approaches including genetics, pathology, epidemiology, and neuroimaging.
