Conducting new research and training in aging
Biodemography of Aging, by Anatoliy Yashin, Eric Stallard, and Kenneth Land, explores research into how age-related changes at the individual level, along with other factors, contribute to morbidity, disability, and mortality risks at the population level.
Kaare Christensen (Duke) searches for genes/variants associated with healthy aging phenotypes in all surviving participants of the Long Life Family Study.
Michel Guillot (U-Penn) evaluates potential explanations for the migrant mortality advantage found in prior studies, including methodological pitfalls.
Sanjay Basu (Stanford) develops 'cohort filtering models' to link health outcomes and social program participation data at the individual level over decades.
Jenny Tung (Duke) and colleagues examine the relationship between chronic social stress and gene expression in immune cells among female macaques.
