  • Adrian Dobs Lab

    Principal Investigator:
    Adrian Dobs, M.D., M.H.S.
    Medicine

    Researchers in the Adrian Dobs Lab study topics that include gonadal dysfunction, hyperlipidemi...a, diabetes mellitus, and the relationship between sex hormones and heart disease. We currently are investigating male gonadal function—with particular interest in new forms of male hormone replacement therapy—and hormonal changes related to aging. view more

    Research Areas: diabetes mellitus, hormones, hyperlipidemia, male gonadal function, cardiovascular diseases, endocrinology
  • Agrawal Lab

    Lab Website

    The Agrawal Lab is focused on the medical and surgical treatment of otologic and neurotologic c...onditions. Research is focused on the vestibular system (the inner ear balance system), and how the function of the vestibular system changes with aging. Particular focus is given to study how age-related changes in vestibular function influence mobility disability and fall risk in older individuals. view more

    Research Areas: cognition, visuospatial ability, vertigo, aging, balance, vestibular system
  • Andrew Feinberg Laboratory

    Lab Website
    Principal Investigator:
    Andrew Feinberg, M.D., M.P.H.
    Medicine

    The Feinberg Laboratory studies the epigenetic basis of normal development and disease, includi...ng cancer, aging and neuropsychiatric illness. Early work from our group involved the discovery of altered DNA methylation in cancer as well as common epigenetic (methylation and imprinting) variants in the population that may be responsible for a significant population-attributable risk of cancer.

    Over the last few years, we have pioneered the field of epigenomics (i.e., epigenetics at a genome-scale level), founding the first NIH-supported NIH epigenome center in the country and developing many novel tools for molecular and statistical analysis. Current research examines the mechanisms of epigenetic modification, the epigenetic basis of cancer, the invention of new molecular, statistical, and epidemiological tools for genome-scale epigenetics and the epigenetic basis of neuropsychiatric disease, including schizophrenia and autism.

  • Bakker Memory Lab

    Lab Website

    Research in the Bakker Memory Laboratory is focused on understanding the mechanisms and brain n...etworks underlying human cognition with a specific focus on the mechanisms underlying learning and memory and the changes in memory that occur with aging and disease. We use a variety of techniques including neuropsychological assessments, experimental behavioral assessments and particularly advanced neuroimaging methods to study these questions in young and older adults and patients with mild cognitive impairment, Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease and epilepsy.

    Through our collaborations with investigators in both basic science and clinical departments, including the departments of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences, Psychological and Brain Sciences, Neurology and Public Health, our research also focuses on brain systems involved in spatial navigation and decision-making as well as cognitive impairment in neuropsychiatric conditions such as schizophrenia, eating disorders, obsessive-compulsive disorders, depression and anxiety.

  • Center on Aging and Health

    Lab Website
    Principal Investigator:
    David Roth, Ph.D., M.A.
    Medicine

    The Center on Aging and Health pursues creative approaches to solve the important health and he...alth care problems for an aging population. Research in our center involves population-based and clinical studies of the causes, correlates, and consequences of aging-related conditions, including frailty, disability, and social isolation. We house four distinct research working groups: the Frailty and Multisystem Dysregulation Working Group; the Family and Social Resources Working Group; the Cognitive and Sensory Functions Working Group; and the Biostatistics, Design and Analysis Working Group. We provide key infrastructure, such as the statistical data core, that supports clinical- and population-based research and education with expertise in research with older adults. view more

    Research Areas: cognition, disabilities, behavioral research, stroke, frailty, biostatistics, dementia, gerontology
  • Cochlear Center for Hearing and Public Health

    Lab Website

    The Cochlear Center for Hearing and Public Health is dedicated to training clinicians, research...ers and public health experts to study and address the impact that hearing loss has on older adults and public health. We aim to make measured local, national and global impacts through a macro level (e.g., public policy legislation), micro level (e.g., programs to deliver hearing care to individuals in a particular community), and everywhere in between (e.g., influential research publications, etc.) to adhere to our center’s overall mission and vision of effectively optimizing the health and function of an aging society and become the premier global resource for ground-breaking research and training on hearing loss and public health. view more

    Research Areas: otolaryngology, public health, audiology, gerontology, hearing loss, societal perspectives
  • Daniel Nyhan Lab

    Lab Website

    The Daniel Nyhan Lab studies vascular changes that accompany aging to determine the underlying ...causes and find ways to reverse the process. One goal of our research is to identify the factors that cause vascular stiffness. Our hope is that our work in vascular biology will lead to new ways to improve vascular compliance and thereby improve cardiovascular function and perioperative risk. view more

    Research Areas: hypertension, cardiovascular, vascular biology, vascular diseases
