Aging is a complex, universal condition leading to the functional decline of all cells and organisms, and to major national and global public health problems. Although aging is the major risk factor for developing most adult-onset diseases, systematic investigations into the fundamental physiology, biology and genetics of aging are only just beginning.

Created in 2002, the Albert Einstein College of Medicine Institute for Aging Research (IAR) conducts focused multidisciplinary research geared towards unraveling essential elements in the biology of aging. The Institute for Aging Research’s goals are to continue to develop infrastructure, collaboration, programs, and novel science to expand our understanding in aging.
