UCSB to Launch New Research Center Devoted to Aging and Longevity

March 22, 2023

A major and exciting new research center dedicated to the science of aging and longevity will soon be launched at UC Santa Barbara, the Center for Aging and Longevity Studies (CALS). The launching of CALS follows “extraordinary advances in the biology of aging and the discovery that its progression can be slowed”. PBS Professor Nicole Albada will be the CALS Director of Education and Outreach. She notes that: the center promotes education in the issues of aging and longevity by “cultivating the next generation of scientists, entrepreneurs, and healthcare professionals both through development of new courses and research experiences.”
