Six new Roybal Centers for Applied Gerontology established by National Institute on Aging

The National Institute on Aging (NIA), part of the National Institutes of Health (NIH), announced the establishment of six new Edward R. Roybal Centers for Research on Applied Gerontology. The Centers at the Indiana University, Princeton University, Stanford University, RAND, and the Oregon Health and Sciences University will join the four existing Roybal Centers to conduct research on patient management, well-being, how to forecast the effects of medical breakthroughs, the effects of policy on the decisions people make medically and economically, and new ways to use technology to measure and provide health care.

Authorized by Congress in 1993 and named for former House Select Committee on Aging Chair Edward R. Roybal, the Centers are designed to move promising social and behavioral basic research findings out of the laboratory and into programs, practices and policies that will improve the lives of older people and the capacity of society to adapt to societal aging. Established for 5 years, the Centers will receive a total of $1.8 million in funding in their first year.

"Building on a foundation of strong basic findings, this new group of Roybal Centers has the potential to develop highly innovative and practical solutions for a number of very real and pressing problems. These include how to help make better medical and health-related decisions and to develop a more accurate measure of quality of life that could be used to measure the impact of clinical interventions on people's well-being," said Richard Suzman, Ph.D., Associate Director of the NIA for Behavioral and Social Research.

The Centers, principal investigator, and focus are:

  • Indiana University, Christopher M. Callahan, M.D. Selected for its extensive expertise in geriatric medicine, the University of Indiana Center will develop tools for patient management, with a focus on physician and patient interaction.

  • Princeton University, Daniel Kahneman, Ph.D
