The goal of the Center on Aging and Health (COAH) is to promote the intellectual interactions that are essential in the development of creative approaches to solve the important health and health care problems for an aging population.
Research in the Center on Aging and Health involves population-based and clinical studies of the causes, correlates, and consequences of aging-related conditions, including frailty, disability, and social isolation. The Center on Aging and Health houses four distinct research working groups. More information on each working group is provided in the following links:
Frailty and Multisystem Dysregulation Working Group
Family and Social Resources Working Group
Cognitive and Sensory Functions Working Group
Biostatistics, Design and Analysis Working Group
COAH spans the full spectrum of aging research, from the biology of aging to health policy, facilitating the translation of research discoveries into applications that will directly improve the health of older adults. The Center provides key infrastructure, such as the statistical data core, that supports clinical- and population-based research and education with expertise in research with older adults.
