The mission of the Institute on Aging (IOA) at the University of Pennsylvania is to improve the health of older adults by increasing the quality and quantity of clinical and basic research as well as educational programs focusing on normal aging and aging-related diseases across the entire Penn campus.
“The IOA has a tremendous impact at and beyond Penn through pursuing goals that address important aspects of human aging and aging in animal models of human diseases. Our vision at the IOA is to combat aging from all possible directions – that is from studies of human beings to animal models - to advance our understanding of aging and aging related diseases.”
- John Q. Trojanowski, MD, PhD, Director of the IOA
