Research Cores

The Center has created a strong environment in which to conduct research on aging through the provision of state-of-the-art research resources. The Center’s Research Cores provide care for mouse colonies (Animal Core), phenotyping of these animals (Healthspan Core), and tracking and analysis of the resulting data (Statistical Core). The Center is also evaluating, integrating and disseminating data relating to the genetics of aging from mouse, human and other organisms (Translational Core). Together these Cores foster shared use and collaborative research, and are utilized by researchers within and outside of the Center.

Development Core

Pilot/feasibility projects are coordinated by the Development Core which provides support for new and established investigators entering research in the aging arena.

Administrative Core

Center administrative functions, including the External Advisory Committee, are organized by the Administrative Core.
