The Stanford University School of Medicine is a world-class training ground for future leaders in biomedical research and medical practice. Housed within the Department of Medicine’s Primary Care and Population Health (PCPH), Stanford’s Geriatric Research Section aims to accelerate the translation of discoveries to the practice of geriatric medicine.  Newly established in 2021, our research section includes investigators not only in within our section, but across the medical school, university, and the VA Palo Alto Health Care System.

Our research faculty and staff are diverse with wide ranging expertise, who emphasize inclusiveness of ideas of thought, while also committing their time and resources towards working for a better system to embrace and respect our aging population in achieving personalized goals.
