Vital Discovery: Research

The URAI’s focus on scientific discovery will expand the breadth and depth of work on aging being conducted throughout the university community to build an enabling research infrastructure that promotes team science, data science and multidisciplinary aging studies.

The URAI will also promote national and international renown; expand federal and foundation funding; discover novel approaches to increase longevity and health span; and translate scientific discovery into innovative approaches to improving patient care and clinical outcomes.
