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.
