Office for Research on Aging
The Office for Research on Aging at St. Louis College of Pharmacy was instituted in 1993 to encourage and facilitate studies of aging people within the field of pharmacy. The office promotes gerontological research within the clinical aspects of pharmacy practice, as well as both basic and applied research of the physiological, psychological, social, and cultural dimensions of aging. The office presents campus programs, develops proposals, seeks donations, external funding and sponsored projects, conducts research, provides program evaluation services, prepares appropriate reports of these activities, and assists others to do the same. The office sponsors a Fall Lecture Program on topics of general interest, a Spring Lecture Program reporting current research, and an on-campus Gerontology Interest Group. A newsletter, The Office Report, is distributed biannually.
