Our mission in the Institute on Aging is to improve the health, independence and quality of life of older adults by means of interdisciplinary teams in the areas of research, education and health care. The Institute on Aging – whose infrastructure and academic environment are provided by the Department of Aging and Geriatric Research – is the home of faculty members from diverse disciplines who wish to pursue a career primarily focused on research and education on aging.

We are dedicated to high quality interdisciplinary and transnational research and training focused on the health and independence of older adults. It is our continuing goal to be at the forefront of research, education and career development in the area of aging, and make significant contributions to the preservation of independence and prevention and rehabilitation of disabilities affecting our senior citizens.
