The Center for Research and Education on Aging (CREA) is a joint LBNL and UCB institution. CREA's mission is to investigate the basic processes that cause aging, with the goal of improving and extending human health span. CREA integrates the efforts of cell and molecular biologists, structural and computational biologists, geneticists, physiologists and public health professionals, who are the intellectual assets and resources of the University of California, Berkeley and the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory.
We are engaged in many areas of research such as systems biology, brain imaging via automated imaging microscopy, the study of neuroendocrine changes in the hypothalamus, the creation of bioinformatic systems to study the aging process at the anatomical, physiological, cellular, molecular and genetic levels, and we are very inerested in the effects of hormonal changes on the aging process.

  New Concepts in the study of Aging  
   Dr. Paola S. Timiras  talks about the study of aging and how new concepts and techologies are helping to shed light on the aging process. She says that many scientists have changed their views on aging, from one of resignation to that of a willingness to find ways of modifying the aging process and extending the human health span.
