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. The Marcus Institute is an affiliate of Harvard Medical School, and we partner with leading research organizations around the world. Our research portfolio ranks us in the top 10 percent of institutions funded by the National Institutes of Health.
Our Vision and Innovation
The Marcus Institute has been focused on finding answers to the concerns of older adults since before geriatrics formally started as a specialty. Throughout our history, we have challenged common assumptions about aging and uncovered innovative treatments and best practices that help seniors live longer, more active, and more fulfilling lives.
Who We Are
With senior faculty who are renowned investigators and a pipeline of talented mid-level and junior faculty bringing exciting new ideas, skills, and energy to the Marcus Institute, we are poised to continue our important contributions to the health and well-being of older adults for decades to come.
