Michigan's University Research Corridor (URC) recently announced the renewal of a $3.5 million National Institutes of Health's National Institute on Aging grant awarded to the Michigan Center for Urban African American Aging Research, (MCUAAAR).

MCUAAAR is a collaboration between the University of Michigan, Wayne State University, and now Michigan State University. James Jackson, research professor at the U-M Institute for Social Research, is the project's principal investigator.

In Michigan New's version of the URC's news release on the grant renewal, Jackson, reflected on MCUAAR's impact: "MCUAAAR has operated as a resource for the Detroit older community for over 20 years," Jackson said. "It has assisted in transforming innumerable lives of community dwelling elders of color and faculty members at Wayne State and the University of Michigan in the process. We are very pleased that MSU will be joining us this year to begin expanding our work to Flint and MSU at Flint."
