For more than a quarter century, UCLA and its affiliated institutions have developed new initiatives in geriatrics and gerontological research to advance knowledge of the aging process and population.
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.
The Eisner Foundation Intergeneration Programs at UCLA is soliciting proposals for one-year pilot awards that focus on intergenerational activities defined by engagement between two or more generations (e.g., children and older adults, older adults and college students). Proposed pilots can include support for research or program development/implementation, which must also include an evaluation of program outcomes. The pilot program will support 1-3 small intergenerational pilot programs per year with the possibility of renewal and/or expansion during the subsequent years. The maximum initial award is $50,000 over a one-year period.See Complete Announcement
