The Hopkins Center for Population Aging and Health (HCPAH) supports the development of trans-disciplinary science on population aging and health. Specifically we draw upon the strengths that Johns Hopkins has developed in the study of aging and disability from both social science and biomedical perspectives to foster new interdisciplinary collaborations that enhance our understanding of the social and behavioral pathways to disability and the consequences of disablement for individuals, families, and society.

The HCPAH is located in the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, but facilitates collaboration across the Schools of Arts and Sciences, Public Health, Medicine, and Nursing, as well as other academic enterprises.

The HCPAH supports pilot research that brings together researchers with common interests from different disciplines and supports the development of tools that can be used by other researchers both within the University and in the larger research community. The HCPAH also includes the NIA-funded National Health and Aging Trends Study (NHATS).
