Center for Research on Aging

Give to this Center

The Organized Research Center (ORC) in Gerontology was established in 1998 under the leadership of Andrew P. Goldberg, MD, and Jay S. Magaziner, PhD, MSHyg. Dr. Magaziner assumed sole leadership of the Center in 2015 when Dr. Goldberg retired from the University of Maryland.

The center coordinates research and research training in those areas of gerontology that transcend traditional disciplinary lines and are amenable to an interdisciplinary approach to critical issues in aging research. It interfaces with the University's existing efforts in gerontology and geriatric medicine to develop research, educational and clinical programs that nurture and expand research and research funding in aging.

Dr. Magaziner assumed sole leadership of the Center in 2015 when Dr. Goldberg retired from the University. Since then Dr. Magaziner has continued to shape the Center's directions and sucessfully expanded membership to 134 affiliates including 20 leaders from all schools across campus and UMBC.
