CCPAH supports inter-disciplinary research on healthy aging and social and economic productivity in the United States and across the globe. In addition to the U.S. faculty are deeply engaged in research and primary data collection on the demography and economics of aging in China, India, Indonesia, Malawi, the Philippines, Russia, and Sri Lanka. A critical component of CCPAH research is recognition that measurement of biomarkers, genetics, and cognition, but also of relationships and exposure to stressors, are critical for understanding healthy aging.
