Changing the Standard of Care
Aging happens to all of us. That’s why it's essential to challenge what we think we know about human aging.
Over its more than 50 years, the Marcus Institute has discovered innovative treatments and proven best practices that help seniors live longer, more active, and more fulfilling lives.
We are an affiliate of Harvard Medical School, and we partner with leading research organizations around the world. Our research portfolio ranks us in the top 11 percent of institutions funded by the National Institutes of Health.
Real-World Research in a Clinical Setting
Being part of Hebrew SeniorLife means that Marcus Institute researchers work in close proximity to more than 3,000 seniors each day, many of whom volunteer to participate in our studies. Their needs, struggles, and challenges drive our work. Our results lead to new services, programs, treatments, and standards of care.
Backed by Geriatric Experts
Behind all our research is a team of leading geriatric experts. Most of our faculty members have appointments at Harvard Medical School, with six holding full professor of medicine status. Our investigators are mentors, teachers, clinicians, and collaborators.
Participate in Clinical Trials
Would you like to take part in research about how people age, and how we can improve quality of life as we get older? The Marcus Institute often seeks participants for clinical trials about cognitive impairment, falls, fractures, and more.
