Cornell Institute for Translational Research on Aging

The Cornell Institute for Translational Research on Aging (CITRA) promotes translational research on aging, including the development, implementation, and dissemination of innovative, evidence-based intervention programs. CITRA was founded in 1993 as an Edward R. Roybal Center funded by the National Institute on Aging.

CITRA’s objectives are to:

  • Promote community-based, translational research on the problems affecting older people
  • Develop innovative methods to bridge the gap between research and practice
  • Encourage community–researcher partnerships in the field
  • Create a network of investigators committed to translational research on aging
  • Improve the translation of research findings into programs and policies that benefit older persons
  • Strengthen evidence-based practice in the field of aging
