The Research Program of the Gerontology Center occurs in the respective departments and laboratories of our core center faculty and of our new faculty group on age-related research.
Research of Center Faculty
Andrew Revell, PhD, is the Principal Investigator of the Southcoast Cognitive Aging Study. To volunteer to participate in future studies, please call 508-999-8385.
Dr. Revell's overall cognitive aging research program addresses three specific areas of interest: 1) remediation of cognitive decline and potential gene-environment interactions; 2) measurement of normal versus pathological changes with age; and 3) multivariate analysis of health and cognition over time.
