Our Work

Duke Aging Center is the University's multidisciplinary hub for aging research and research education. With affiliated investigators and trainees from diverse Schools, Departments, Centers, and Institutes across the institution, all aging-roads at Duke lead to the Aging Center.

Established in 1955 as the Center for the Study of Aging and Human Development, Duke Aging Center is the only one of the five original aging centers in the USA to be continuously funded.  You can read more about our Center's rich history here.

From the bench to the bedside, the variety of innovative research conducted by Aging Center investigators continues to deepen and grow.  We also continue to expand and refine our research training programs to develop the next generation of robust gerontology and geriatrics investigators.
