For over a quarter century, UCLA and its affiliated institutions have recognized the need to develop new initiatives in geriatrics and gerontological research to advance knowledge regarding older people and the aging process.
The research interests of UCLA faculty span the basic, clinical, social, and behavioral sciences.
Research conducted by MPGMG faculty focuses upon the clinical epidemiology, diagnosis, and treatment of diseases of older persons; health services delivery; the physiology of age-related changes; and the basic cellular and molecular biology of aging.
Our efforts within UCLA include exciting translational research efforts that bring what is learned at the research bench to the bedside. The advances brought forth by our researchers aims to improve the lifelong process of aging.
