Aging, Genetics, and Social Science
MiCDA researchers are developing and testing new interdisciplinary approaches to the study of how genetics and social contexts interact to affect aging. They are also spearheading efforts to incorporate genetic information into behavioral and social surveys, via the establishment of Michigan’s HRS genetic database in 2012, and the promotion of similar population genotyping in other large social science surveys.
