The objective of this Core is to support Program Development that will lead to new research on aging within the Center for Health and Wellbeing (CHW) at Princeton University. The Center has three signature themes: (1) the relationship between socioeconomic status and health over the life-cycle;(2) the determinants and measurement of decision-making and wellbeing among aging individuals;and (3) comparative and cross national studies health, wellbeing and aging. The Center also has considerable (and growing) expertise in the area of HIV/AIDS and aging. Distinguishing features of the Center include a high level of interdisciplinary research, a focus on primary data collection, and a large set of cross-University collaborations. The Program Development Core will have two components. The first is to develop innovative small-scale """"""""pilot projects"""""""" on that will explore new research methodologies and start new lines of inquiry on topics related to the themes of the center. Three sample pilot projects are included in this proposal: These are: (1) Metabolic Signatures of Life Challenges in a Wild Baboon Population;Jeanne Altmann and Burton Singer;(2) Behavioral Screening and Program Take-up;Eldar Shafir;and (3) Wellbeing and Age Around the World;Angus Deaton;The second component of the Program Development Core is to support the research of three new assistant professors (two in economics and one in sociology) who are beginning new research that is central to the aims of the Center. The Program Development Core will support one semester of sabbatical time for each of these new researchers

Public Health Relevance

; The Center will support a broad set of projects that aim to improve the health and wellbeing of the elderly. For example, we will study how social and biological factors influence health and cognition as people age;develop programs to help the elderly made better decisions about their health care and finances;and study how changes in the economy influence the well-being of the elderly.
