Interdisciplinary Research Resources:

Through its university-wide network, the Center for Research on Aging has identified many methods for comprehensive research and training in gerontology. To maximize use of existing resources and populations, the Center focuses on areas of substantially funded initiatives and nationally recognized programs in gerontology.

Center investigators have established core facilities as research resources to promote collaboration among faculty members and trainees. These include:

  • Exercise Testing and Training
  • Population-based Research 
  • Obesity, Metabolism, and Nutrition
  • Functional Performance and Quality of Life
  • Biostatistics and Informatics
  • Body Composition
  • Gait and Biomechanics
  • Multidisciplinary Geriatrics Assessment
  • Epidemiology and Recruitment
