Our Pilot Studies

Stage 0 through Stage 5 research projects which aim to adapt to an increasingly aging society.

Who are we?

The Roybal Resource and Coordinating Center to Accelerate Translational Aging Research provides strategic leadership and coordination to the innovative Edward R. Roybal Research Centers. This Coordinating Center and the Roybal Research Centers are in part or wholly funded by the National Institute on Aging.

 

The Coordinating Center's focuses are: developing support for care providers who work with individuals with Alzheimer's disease and related dementias (ADRD); and developing intervention research for behavioral and social sciences of aging.  The Roybal Research Centers are conducting pilot studies in order to produce potent and implementable, principle-driven behavioral interventions which will improve the health, well-being and/or capacity of individuals as they age as well as the systems that provide these individuals with care. This research comes at a much needed time as institutions are navigating adapting to an aging society.

 

The Roybal Coordinating Center will facilitate and coordinate all trans-Roybal activities, and therefore serve as a hub for Alzheimer's, aging, and dementia research.

Roybal's Legacy

Edward. R Roybal was a United States Congressman representing South California in the House of Representatives for 30 years. Roybal’s dedication to public service originated in 1949 when he became the first Latino, since 1881, to serve on the Los Angeles City Council until 1962. Before his term, Roybal advocated for fair representation in the economic, educational, and social welfare of the Hispanic community, and Roybal remained resolved in his purpose for equal rights through policy and social changes. He was an active patron for the underprivileged, non-native English speakers, the elderly and other non-profit organizations. During his tenure as a Congressman, Roybal served on the Interior and Insular Affairs Committee, the Post Office Committee, the Foreign Affairs Committee, the Veteran's Affairs Committee and on the House Appropriations Committee, during which he underwrote bills and founded programs that benefited marginalized communities including the elderly, Mexican-Americans and veterans. Roybal’s service as Chairman of the House Select Committee on Aging championed legislation that created affordable healthcare programs and housing for senior citizens. Edward Roybal’s commitment to serving his community was unwavering throughout his entire professional career, and his legacy remains steadfast.
