Aging and Health

Mission

COAH aims to lead on an international level in advancements to optimize the health and quality of life of older populations, and to see our discoveries pay off as added years of healthy life for older adults. COAH is equally committed to research on effective clinical care for an aging population and to the translation of these results to improve the health of older adults. We seek to foster interdisciplinary research and to train the next generations of research leaders, who will be essential to guiding advances in prevention and health promotion. We seek to position the Johns Hopkins University in a leadership role as our society transitions to meet the needs of an aging population. 

Goals

  • To serve as a collaborative, multidisciplinary hub of science and translation in the field of aging.
  • To conduct cutting-edge research that will result in a longer healthy life for older adults.
  • To train the next generation of researchers who will propel geriatrics and gerontology toward optimizing the health and quality of life of the older population through prevention and clinical care.
  • To translate our findings into new and better models of health promotion to benefit older adults in real time.
