The Northwest Roybal Center for Translational Research on Aging


The mission of the Northwest Roybal Center (NRC) is to promote the translation of basic behavioral and social sciences research to improving health, well being, quality of life and productivity of older adults with cognitive impairment and their caregivers. The NRC focuses on the systematic and strategic translation of well-researched methods of assessment and evidence-based interventions along the full continuum of environments in which older adults reside and receive care (including private homes, retirement communities, assisted living residences, adult family homes and skilled nursing facilities).
