Geriatrics and Gerontology Research

The research programs sponsored by the UW Section of Geriatrics and Gerontology and the Madison VA Geriatric Research Education and Clinical Center (GRECC) work to integrate interdisciplinary principles of geriatric medicine into translational research that differentiates normal aging from disease and investigates effective treatment strategies and care management plans to improve the lives of older adults. Important areas of research include Alzheimer's disease, cancer and aging, osteoporosis, falls, older women's health, and the effects of caloric restriction on aging.
