Johns Hopkins Center on Aging and Health

Established in 1998 as a center of excellence for aging research at Johns Hopkins, the Center on Aging and Health (COAH) is home to an interdisciplinary group of research faculty, the Claude D. Pepper Older Americans Independence Center, and the Epidemiology of Aging and Geriatric Health Services Research programs. COAH’s goal is to promote the intellectual interactions that are essential to creative approaches to solving the important health and health care problems for an aging population.

The core research in COAH involves population-based and clinical research on the causes and consequences of diseases, frailty, and disability in older adults, characterizing groups at risk of adverse health outcomes, identifying causes, and developing methods for screening and prevention.

Research at COAH covers the full spectrum of aging research, from the biology of aging to health policy, facilitating the translation of research discoveries into applications that will directly improve the health of older adults.

For more information about its research and training programs, visit the Center on Aging and Health website.
