Robert and Arlene Kogod Center on Aging
Innovative research center for aging research and age-related conditions
The Kogod Center on Aging has a national presence, bringing together clinicians and scientists from all departments at Mayo Clinic's three campuses in Arizona, Florida and Minnesota in a unique collaboration that leads to innovative ways of studying aging.
Building on these groundbreaking findings, our researchers in the Kogod Center on Aging have developed interventions that target senescent cells in an effort to improve the aging process by delaying the onset effects of aging as a whole. Our seven research programs each focus on a different element of aging but have a shared goal to advance scientific discovery about how people age:
Aging Bone and Muscle Program
Cardiovascular Function and Aging Program
Cellular Senescence Program
Healthy Aging and Independent Living Program
Metabolism, Nutrition and Aging Program
Regenerative Medicine and Aging Program
Translation and Pharmacology Program
