Research at CDHA focuses on theoretical, methodological, and policy issues related to population aging and health. The program has a growing research portfolio examining the interplay between social, economic, geographic, and biological determinants of health and longevity. There is an emphasis on the study of genetic and epigenetic biomarkers and recent initiatives to expand research on cognitive health and disparities.

Postdoctoral scholars devote most of their time to independent research and collaboration with faculty mentors at CDHA.
