IU Center for Aging Research

The Indiana University Center for Aging Research was established in 1997 through collaboration between Indiana University, the Indiana University School of Medicine, and the Regenstrief Institute, Inc. Founded in the spirit of collaboration, we have remained true to this spirit through interdisciplinary research that engages the scientific, provider, patient, and lay communities.

The mission of the Center is to improve the health care and self-care of older adults. Our scientists have a particular interest in research to strengthen the nation’s primary care system to better serve the needs of older Americans. We also conduct research to integrate the resources of the health care system with the resources of the social and public health agencies seeking to improve the lives of older adults. Over the past decade, our research has increasingly emphasized the important role of the older adult in achieving their health goals through self-care and self-management.
