PhD in the Biology of Aging

Integrated Biomedical Sciences Program

We invite you to join us as a graduate student to study the biology of aging at the world-renowned Barshop Institute. We are the only institution in the US to house both a Nathan Shock Center on the Biology of Aging, which is a grant from the National Institute on Aging that supports basic aging research, as well as an Older Americans Independence Center (often called “Pepper Center”), a grant from the NIA to support translational aging research. More than 100 faculty members are engaged in various aspects of aging research. Please browse our faculty research areas for more details. Other unique features of our program: We are one of three institutions to house a National Institute on Aging Intervention Testing Program; our NIA-funded Training Grant, which can supply you with a stipend, has 4 predoctoral graduate student positions available.
