Our Mission

The UCR Aging Initiative consists of an intellectually diverse collection of researchers interested in the multifaceted effects of aging. Our integrative approach considers aging across many levels of analysis – from molecule to individual to society. We ultimately seek to address the unique needs of older populations in our region.

Our vision is to create a world-class institute on aging on the UCR campus that will be a center of research, educational resource, and hub for the community. To achieve this goal, we have identified the following 3 areas of growth:

-  Shared resources: We will create shared resources to advance aging research on campus (e.g., participant database, data sharing, funding) and provide opportunities for collaborations. 

-  Educational programs: We will offer workshops and courses on the multifaceted effects of aging to train the next generation of aging researchers.

-  Community engagement: We will promote public education and build partnerships with community members via seminars on aging and social events with aging researchers.
