Improving Health Care for Older Adults
BIDMC's Division of Gerontology is committed to advancing knowledge about aging in order to improve health care for older adults. The Division's research faculty members are located at two sites: BIDMC's main Boston location and Hebrew SeniorLife's campus.
Researchers based at BIDMC are currently working in several exciting areas, including:
- Extension of Community Health Outcomes-Care Transitions
- Functional Outcomes After Surgical Procedures
- Geriatric Diabetes Research Program
Our research faculty at Hebrew SeniorLife holds appointments at BIDMC and the Hinda and Arthur Marcus Institute for Aging Research, which is one of the nation's leading clinical research centers in gerontology. Currently supported by over $85 million of government grants and contracts, the Marcus Institute is among the top 1 percent of research institutions in NIH grants.
