The Asian Resource Center for Minority Aging Research (RCMAR) administered by Rutgers Institute for Health, Health Care Policy and Aging Research announced a transition in leadership of the National Institute on Aging P30 Center Core Grant.
The Rutgers Asian RCMAR received $3.4 million in funding from the National Institute on Aging to address the gap in research on U.S. Asian older adults. Currently in the fifth year of the grant, the Rutgers Asian RCMAR has advanced the careers of scientists from underrepresented populations through translation trauma and resilience research among one of the most understudied, yet fastest growing populations in the U.S.: Asian American older adults. The focus on research, population and investigators aims to inform both practice and policy at community, regional and national levels.
Beginning in August 2022, the Rutgers Asian RCMAR will be led by Multiple Principal Investigators (MPI’s) including:
The new MPI’s will bring their expertise to the grant in areas such as cognitive aging, health outcomes, end-of-life care, risk behaviors among health disparity populations, and resilience-related factors pertaining to brain health and psychological well-being.
