Research at the Barshop Institute aims to bring fundamental discoveries in the basic biology of aging into clinical practice. Researchers at the Barshop Institute sustain their scientific endeavors by successfully competing for funding at the national level.
Making a Difference Through Research
Leading Aging Research
Only aging-intensive research institute in the country to currently have all of the following four designations: the NIA-funded Nathan Shock and Claude D. Pepper centers, a testing site of the NIA-sponsored Interventions Testing Program, and a U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs Geriatric Research, Education & Clinical Center (GRECC).
Bench to Bedside
Our research translates from the laboratory bench to the patient bedside at our Barshop Clinical Research Unit, where faculty perform clinical trials based on the latest research findings.
Excellence in Aging Education
Our NIA training grant enables four graduate students and four postdoctoral fellows to pursue novel research in the biology of aging and the emerging area of geroscience.
