Aging Research

One of the primary goals of the Institute on Aging is to stimulate innovative, collaborative research. At the University of Virginia, an estimated 300 faculty members are investigating some aspect of the aging process. The Institute seeks to help individuals cross disciplinary boundaries to study major topics such as elder abuse, cognitive aging, memory loss, neurodegenerative disease, exercise, and assistive technology.
