The percentage of the world population aged 65 or over is expected to double by 2050. This presents enormous challenges to: health care, the labor force, and the financial health of key institutions, amongst others.
The NYU Aging Incubator was established in 2016-17 as a university-wide initiative bringing together faculty and students from across the University from all disciplines who are involved in the study of aging and its impacts. It is hoped that the NYU Aging Incubator will be the resource for the NYU community to find information on research, educational activities, events, and services for the aging community and provide support for the development of innovative and interdisciplinary research, policy and educational endeavors, to improve the health and well-being of older adults.
