Division of Geriatrics and Clinical Gerontology

The Division of Geriatrics and Clinical Gerontology (DGCG) supports clinical and translational research on health and disease in the aged, and research on aging over the human life span, including its relationships to health outcomes.  DGCG foci include translational research for the development of new interventions for age-related conditions, prevention and treatment of multiple chronic conditions in the elderly, and studies that help to promote evidenced based geriatric care and inform policies affecting older adults.

Over the past years, DGCG-supported research has made advances regarding health issues facing the older population, and aging changes over the life span that affect prospects for healthy aging. New lines of research on these issues have been initiated.
