Garrison Institute on Aging
The Garrison Institute on Aging (GIA) at Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center (TTUHSC) is a collaborative initiative designed to improve brain health and quality of life in aging through innovative research, education and community outreach.
GIA advances and disseminates knowledge about healthy aging and aging related health issues, including neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s, through basic and translational research. GIA houses a newly created behavioral testing and electrophysiology facility, molecular biology laboratories, brain bank, and a longitudinal epidemiological data base on aging in a multiethnic adult sample from rural communities of West Texas (Project FRONTIER).
Aging-related nervous system dysfunctions represent a major health care problem in this country and worldwide. The better understanding of disease mechanisms is needed to develop novel and improved diagnostic and therapeutic tools and strategies. GIA provides the infrastructure and expertise for collaborative efforts of basic scientists and clinicians from various disciplines and specialties in the area of aging-related and neurodegenerative disorders.
