Lifespan - Aging Workgroup
Translational science is integrated across its multiple phases and disciplines within complex populations and across the individual lifespan.


The goals of this workgroup are :

  • Promote networking between and among CTSA programs and the major gerontological networks (e.g. Older Americans Independence Centers, Alzheimer’s Disease Centers) so as to foster collaboration in research and training
  • Improve engagement, identification, recruitment, and retention of older adults in clinical trials
  • Identification of biomarkers of frailty – including both serum markers and performance/assessment of daily activities that can be used as important outcome measures in implementation studies for improving the health of the elderly
