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

. Princeton will examine well-being by developing methods introduced by Nobel Laureate Kahneman on introducing important psychological and social components to measure well-being on a more effective basis than traditional approaches.

  • Stanford University, Alan Garber, Ph.D., M.D. -- The Stanford Roybal Center will apply an emerging interest in better "emotional regulation" with increasing age to the choices people make when encountering medical and health-related decisions.

  • RAND Institute, Dana Goldman, Ph.D. Goldman's group will study ways to forecast the effects of medical breakthroughs on behaviors and decisions related to public and private health expenditures. The Center will see how surveys on these issues might be conducted by using the Internet.

  • RAND Institute, Arie Kapteyn, Ph.D. This second RAND Center, established at a different research group than Goldman's with funds largely from the NIH's Office for Behavioral and Social Science Research (OBSSR), will develop Internet tools to examine the economic decisions older people make based on their ability to understand risks and probability of events.

  • Oregon Health Sciences University, Jeffrey Kaye, M.D. -- Using new technologies and input from academics, health providers, and community and industry leaders, Oregon will develop a unique senior community from the ground up, one in which the activities within this community can be studied unobtrusively to examine the well-being of older people as they age.
