UF gets almost $15 million in federal funds to build research complex to help older adults
Date:1/19/2010

GAINESVILLE, Fla. The University of Florida's Institute on Aging has received close to $15 million from the National Institutes of Health to construct an almost 40,000-square-foot complex for clinical and translational research.

The building will bring together scientists from a range of scientific disciplines and enhance how aging research is carried out on the campus.

"This is a unique opportunity to have basic science, clinical, epidemiology and health services researchers working under the same roof on a common goal improving the health and independence of older adults," said Marco Pahor, M.D., principal investigator of the grant and director of the UF Institute on Aging.

The one-stop facility will make it easier for mobility-restricted older adults to take part in clinical trials, and strengthen connections among existing UF research centers, including the Claude D. Pepper Older Americans Independence Center, the Clinical and Translational Science Institute and the newly established Cognitive Aging and Memory Clinical Translational Research Program.

More than one-fifth of Florida's population is age 60 or older, according to 2006-08 data from the United States Census Bureau. Among all states, Florida has the largest proportion of elderly adults.

The new building is part of UF's commitment to develop multidisciplinary research programs and facilities to help address the needs of the Florida's aging population. It will provide a home on the UF Health Science Center campus for Institute on Aging researchers who are scattered across 11 locations throughout UF and around the state some in leased spaces.

With facilities for clinical research recruitment and assessment, laboratories, training, conferences and lifestyle intervention including an indoor walking track, demonstration kitchen and behavioral counseling suite the building will play a key role in advancing aging-related research and career devel
