Annual Reviews Aging and Development

The global population aged 65+ is growing faster than all other age groups. By 2050, one in six people will be over the age of 65, with the number of persons aged 80+ years expected to triple, according to data collected by the United Nations.

As the world population shifts, our need to understand aging accelerates. Geriatrics and Gerontology studies include research across diverse fields in the life and social sciences.
