The mission of the Institute on Aging at the University of Florida is to promote the health, independence and quality of life of older adults through multidisciplinary research, education and health care. Over the past two decades, the Institute on Aging and its affiliated faculty members have developed robust infrastructure and multidisciplinary teams focused on the full spectrum of aging research.
