Aging and Health


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.

The core research in COAH involves population-based and clinical research on the causes and consequences of diseases, frailty and disability in older adults, characterizing groups at risk of adverse health outcomes, identifying causes and developing methods for screening and prevention.

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.
