Understanding and Reducing the Burden of Age-Related Illness

Research in the Division of Geriatrics and Gerontology aims to better understand the pathobiology of age-associated diseases, reduce the cost and burden of illness and enhance the quality of life of older adults. Several of our programs on Alzheimer's disease and health services research are internationally renowned.

Our work is supported by numerous federal grants and a long-standing partnership with the William S. Middleton Veterans Hospital Geriatric Research, Education and Clinical Center (GRECC).

Our investigators work to transform medicine every day. Get to know them below.
