We are located in the Ethel Percy Andrus Gerontology Center, the research and education component of the Davis School of Gerontology at the University of Southern California. The school was established through a gift from Dr. Leonard Davis, who advocated for the development of insurance for older Americans and whose generosity led to the creation of the world's first higher education programs in gerontology, which are now among the very best. The Ethel Percy Andrus Gerontology Center (left) is a world-class facility designed by acclaimed architect Edward Durell Stone. We conduct our research in a highly interdisciplinary environment which has earned the USC Davis School worldwide reputation and where both basic and translational research projects are undertaken. At USC we also have access to world-class facilities and resources through the generosity of the university, including a state-of-the-art magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) facility. The Davis School serves as a focal point for our collaborations with scientists and clinicians from throughout the university, where we conduct both basic and applied research in aging. As the hub of aging research - and with additional strong programs throughout USC - the Davis School is leading the way in defining the field of gerontology. Transdisciplinary relationships within the school and with colleagues throughout the university will take USC Davis research to the next level and will also more firmly establish USC as the world leader in neurogerontology research.
