CAPS Texas Center on Aging and Population SciencesAging research increasingly relies on measures of physiological decline that reflect gradual deterioration across biological systems. As the field continues to integrate measures of biological aging, challenges to conceptualization, measurement, and health equity remain.

Join us for an expert discussion of this exciting area of research on aging.

Professor Greg Miller (Department of Psychology, Northwestern University) will discuss his foundational work on stress, health, and life course determinants of aging.

Professor Jessica Faul (Survey Research Center, University of Michigan) will discuss her work on the measurement of biological age, drawing on her expertise as co-Investigator of the Health and Retirement Study and Co-director of the Biospecimen Laboratory at the Institute for Social Research.

Professor Lauren Leigh Brown (Health Management & Policy, San Diego State University) will discuss biomarkers of aging in diverse populations as well as her innovative work in social genomics that has generally taken on themes of measurement, methods and sampling that more accurately depict the aging experience of Black older adults.
