About

The Center for Transformative Geriatric Research envisions a world in which all older adults thrive.

Our mission is to perform and advance research that transforms healthcare and the lives of older adults.

To achieve our mission, our faculty employ a wide range of research approaches and techniques.  Our major areas of person-oriented research focus on health service delivery for people with complex care needs, the care of people with multiple chronic conditions, person-oriented research on issues related to late-life memory disorders, and health information technology.

We value collaborative research that is innovative, interdisciplinary, patient, caregiver, and family-centered, and which can be translated into practice or health policy.

We believe firmly that performing and publishing research findings is insufficient for the 21st century academicians; it is critical for us to disseminate research findings into the real world to help people.
