Syracuse University

CAPS is a multi-site consortium across Upstate New York, with Syracuse University, Cornell University, and University at Albany. Research at CAPS focuses on two signature themes—health and well-being, and family and intergenerational supports—and three cross-cutting themes of policy, place, and specific populations such as veterans. CAPS fosters innovative and interdisciplinary research, provides topical and methodological training for population-based aging research, and disseminates findings and data resources to scientists and the public.

Research Themes
Health trends, disparities, and determinants; Family and intergenerational supports; Effects of place on health and aging; Effects of social, economic, and healthcare policy on health and aging; Health and aging of specific populations; Disability and long-term care.
