Healthy Aging at Tufts Initiative
More than 200 faculty and scientists at Tufts focus at least some of their research to the theme of Healthy and Active Aging.
These Investigators at Tufts receive $40 million annually in grants and the university supports some 220 thousand square feet of facilities and more than 40 graduate students and 30 post-doctoral scholars to an age- specific focus.
This research concentrates on various avenues of aging including: biology, biomedical engineering, dentistry, neuroscience, nutrition and physical activity, occupational therapy and veterinary science.
