The Center for Aging and Population Health (CAPH), was established in the Department of Epidemiology in 2006 with a central focus for promoting healthy aging, longevity and prevention of age-related disabilities. The Center incorporates the activities of the Prevention Research Center, the Health Studies Research Center and the Epidemiology of Aging Training program. The CAPH has positioned the University of Pittsburgh as a candidate for continued research support from the CDC and NIH, and other federal, philanthropic and corporate sources for its long term research priorities. The CAPH provides resources for the analysis, presentation and publication of findings from current research and maintains several large data sets from multicenter studies. The program in aging includes many large studies with a high level of long term federal funding.
