The Behavior and Physiology in Aging – Research Training Program, funded by NIH for the past 32 years, supports postdoctoral fellows with career interests in aging who train in Duke research programs in which aging research is ongoing. Areas of interest may include medical anthropology, exercise physiology, psychology, and nursing. Fellows attend weekly seminars in the biomedical, social, and psychological aspects of aging as well as in professional development. An important component of the seminar is the annual research ethics modul

The Claude D. Pepper Older American Independence Center (OAIC) with funding by NIA, focuses on understanding and treating dysmobility associated with aging. Following the first designation of the Aging Center as Pepper Center in 1992, the second Pepper Center grant, awarded in 1999, included cores that provided service to other funded research projects, as well as to Pepper-specific projects. A third Pepper Center grant, awarded in 2006, is exploring approaches to understanding and modifying multiple pathways of functional decline through research and faculty development. In collaboration with various Duke departments, divisions, and centers, the OAIC supports mentored research of junior faculty; pilot research projects; an analysis core; a biological studies core; and developmental projects in biomarkers, metabolomics, and database development.

The Duke Dementia Family Support Program provides the following free services to all North Carolina residents: confidential, personalized tips on caring for people with memory disorders; a comprehensive information packet on Alzheimer’s disease and a Caregiver newsletter delivered twice a year; telephone help with care decisions, coping strategies and evaluating service or residential care options as well as help selecting support groups, education programs, online information or books.

The Center for Spirituality, Theology, and Health, in collaboration with the Center for the Study of Aging, has received two awards from the John Templeton Foundation to: 1) solicit, award and coordinate seven research projects which would investigate how religion/spirituality influences individual and community health, and 2) form and maintain a community of scholars, build network of senior and junior researchers in spirituality, theology and health.

The Computing and Statistical Laboratory operated by the Center permits easy access to large data bases and statistical analysis software packages. Both faculty and trainees can also access this facility through personal and laptop computers throughout the building or via modem or DSL facilities from other campus locations or at home. Statistical support to aid investigators and trainees in planning studies, analyzing data and learning how to use statistical software packages is also available in the computing laboratory. This expert statistical assistance is freely available and given in a one-on-one tutorial basis so that trainees and faculty can learn to develop the most appropriate study designs and use the most effective data analysis programs available.

Featured Researcher: Lisa Gwyther, MSW, LCSW

lisa-gwytherMy research interests over thirty-five years at the Duke Center for Aging have evolved from early studies with Drs. Linda George and Elizabeth Clipp of the emotional, physical and financial consequences of caring for a family member with dementia, to evaluating outcomes of dementia-specific care practices such as providing trained in-home respite care workers and individualized family education to reduce negative mental health effects of providing family dementia care.  Later, I collaborated on National Institute on Aging multi-site studies of the effectiveness, benefits and limits of Alzheimer’s special care units in nursing homes, culminating in a collaboration with UNC Sheps Center investigators titled “Families Matter in Long-Term Care”, a group randomized trial funded by the National Institute on Aging.  “Families Matter” was designed to help families work with staff and residents to create a role for themselves that would benefit the resident’s quality of life and improve family/staff relations.  The paper published in the journal, Seniors Housing and Care, won the journal’s Outstanding Research Paper award.

Families of assisted living and nursing home residents were helped to develop plans for their visits which included activities categorized as “doing things”, “getting around”, “looking good” and “eating well”.  Families of residents with dementia did not differ in their frequency of visits from other families, but they spent more time on nutrition, mobility and discussing care with staff.  Overall, the program decreased family burden and improved resident quality of life.  Residential care staff also reported less burnout and greater partnership with families.  However, personal care staff reported greater burden and frustration and felt less in partnership and more controlling by families than their supervisors.  We learned that creating, roles for families may foster a greater sense of responsibility, but perhaps a concomitant realization that they hadn’t been doing as much as they could or should, which resulted in  increased family guilt and conflict.

Currently, I am working with Bobbi Matchar, MSW from the Duke Family Support Program on the “Alzheimer’s Medical Advisor” project funded by the National Institute of Nursing Research, led by UNC geriatrician, Dr. Philip Sloane, with team members from the UNC Sheps Center.

When people with Alzheimer’s disease or related dementias develop new symptoms, such as cough, abdominal pain, or fever, their family caregivers must decide whether the problem is minor enough to try treating at home, or whether to go to a physician’s office or the emergency department. This can be challenging when the person with dementia has difficulty communicating accurately how s/he feels or resists going to an office visit or evaluations by medical professionals.  Families need tools to help them evaluate and manage symptoms that could represent new or evolving medical illness in a family member with Alzheimer’s disease.

The “Alzheimer’s Medical Advisor” is a series of materials in development to help family caregivers of persons with dementia deal with these issues.  It consists of internet-based, written, and video tools to help concerned family understand, identify, communicate with health professionals, and make decisions about medical problems. The materials will:  1) inform families about common medical problems experienced by persons with dementia; 2) help family caregivers decide what to do next when their family member has a new or exacerbated medical problem; new physical symptom; 3) provide a way to record and communicate information that doctors want to know; and 4) provide home care tips for common medical conditions in persons with dementia.

Lisa Gwyther, MSW, LCSW Quoted in Parade Magazine

Lisa Gwyther, MSW, education director at Duke University’s Alzheimer’s Disease Research Center was quoted in the June 21, 2015, issue of Parade magazine as saying

“A lot of unmet needs are being responded to spontaneously – to fill the needs for inclusion, for less stigma about the disease and for more focus on quality of life.”

The quote was in an article by Paula Spencer Scott on “People Power: How grassroots campaigns are easing the burden of caring for someone with Alzheimer’s—and improving patient quality of life.”

The articles also says,

“After social worker Bobbi Matchar held an eight week education program at Duke University for people recently diagnosed and their care partners, the group grew so close nobody wanted it to end. So they called themselves ‘the Alphas’ and three years later, still meet monthly at a local restaurant, along with later graduates of the Duke class. ‘It creates a sense of community among people who didn’t choose to have the situation and who often have to quit their old communities at work and church,’ says Matchar.”

Matchar, MSW, is an assistant to Gwyther in the Duke Family Support Program.

Research Education Component (REC)

The Research Education Component (REC) recognizes that training in aging research faces several unique challenges, including difficulties recruiting geriatricians into research careers and a lack of training in the principles of aging research by other medical disciplines.

The objective of the Research Education Component will be to develop the next generation of researchers who will become leaders in integrating basic science and clinical insights into innovative interventions promoting reserve and resilience in late life.

AIMS of the Research Education Component
  1. Coordinate delivery of Aging research curriculum to early investigators across the University
  2. Provide a structure for individualized Aging and Research mentorship at Duke
  3. Evaluate the effectiveness of Aging research across the Duke OAIC

Cathleen Colón-Emeric, MD, MHS
Professor of Medicine
Chief, Division of Geriatrics
Associate Director-Clinical at the Durham VA Geriatrics Research Education and Clinical Center (GRECC), Adjunct Faculty at the Duke School of Nursing and Duke Clinical Research Institute

Current research focuses on the epidemiology, prediction, and prevention of osteoporotic fractures in elderly persons, and in improving the quality of care delivered to residents in skilled nursing facilities. Ongoing projects include a large, administrative database study of osteoporosis screening in men, a randomized trial of different staff education strategies to improve fall prevention in nursing homes, and several clinical demonstration projects. In 2017, Dr Colón-Emeric received the Clinical Sciences Research Mentoring Award from the Department of Medicine, and in 2018 she was appointed Associate Dean for Research Mentoring for the School of Medicine.

Kimberly Johnson, MD
Associate Professor of Medicine
Associate Director of the CTSA KL-2 program

Dr Johnson leads the Duke Center for REsearch to AdvanCe Healthcare Equity (REACH), where researchers study the effect of a clinician communication coaching intervention—teaching empathic skills and eliciting participatory behaviors—on the quality of communication in cardiology encounters with African American patients; test the use of a mobile app for African American patients receiving palliative care in the ICU and their families to self-report needs, obtain information about patient/family needs, and access decisional support; and develop and pilot test an implicit bias training intervention for providers.

Brian Andonian, MD (Division of Rheumatology and Immunology/Dept. of Medicine)
Accelerated metabolic aging in rheumatoid arthritis immune cells and skeletal muscle: A pilot study

    1. Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is a model disease for studying premature aging. Persons with RA suffer from
      early aging-associated metabolic comorbidities, and are at risk for low resilience, a decreased ability to resist
      functional decline. Mitochondrial function in RA and aging is a marker of cellular reserve, and is thus important for preserving resilience. RA and aged immune cells have abnormal mitochondrial function, which coincide with immune dysregulation. Skeletal muscle in both RA and aging is also marked by altered mitochondria. The pilot study will investigate whether dysfunction of mitochondria, the cellular metabolic “engine,” connects RA peripheral helper T-cells, macrophages and skeletal muscle abnormalities. Objectives are twofold:
      1) to determine whether RA T cell, macrophage and skeletal muscle mitochondrial function abnormalities are associated, and
      2) to determine associations of exercise training on RA immune cell and skeletal muscle mitochondria.

Ming-Feng Hsueh, PhD (Dept. of Orthopedic Surgery)
Harness human cartilage repair capability to prevent and reverse osteoarthritis

    1. Humans have a natural cartilage repair response which is high in the ankle, intermediate in the knee and low in hip cartilages. This repair response in humans is highly associated with the microRNAs used by salamanders and other limb regenerating animals to regenerate whole limbs. This project will evaluate the ability of microRNAs as a therapy to improve cartilage resilience to injury in vitro, and build the foundation for further evaluation in animals for microRNAs’ ability to prevent and reverse the most prevalent of age-related diseases, osteoarthritis, for which we currently have no disease-modifying treatments.

Identification of biomarkers of cognitive resilience in the Duke Performance Across the LifeSpan (PALS) Study

    1. Cognitive resilience is defined as preserved cognitive function in the setting of “stressors” that adversely
      affect cognitive function; it may explain – in part – the heterogeneity of cognitive function in older adults who
      otherwise appear clinically similar, especially with respect to risk factors for Alzheimer’s disease and related
      dementias (ADRD). Blood-based biomarkers of cognitive resilience would be useful to identify protective factors and test resilience-building interventions that preserve cognitive function in the setting of these stressors; currently, no such biomarkers exist. Building on previous work, I propose to develop a measure of cognitive resilience in a subset of community-dwelling older adults from the Duke Performance Across the LifeSpan (PALS; N=297) study with repeat cognitive testing over 3 years. Using this measure, I will identify biomarkers reflecting dysregulation in “Hallmarks of Aging” pathways that are predictive of cognitive resilience.

Effects of aging and the urinary microbiome on recurrent urinary tract infections

    1. Specific interests include: 1) pathophysiology of overactive bladder with particular emphasis on epigenetic mechanisms; and 2) studying the urinary microbiome with aging and in women with recurrent urinary tract infection. Additional interests include clinical outcomes research after surgery for prolapse and other pelvic floor disorders.

Corey Simon, DPT, PhD (Dept. of Orthopedic Surgery)
Physical Resilience to Pain with Activity Influences among Seniors (PRAISE) – Feasibility Study

    1. Research focuses on development of tailored multi-factorial interventions that prevent disability among older adults with low back pain. Low back pain poses a major risk to senior health, as it is the global leader in years lived with disability and strongly associated with mobility disability. However, it is not clear why some older adults with low back pain succumb to mobility disability while others do not. This REC study will determine the feasibility of assessing three factors that may explain mobility disability among older adults with low back pain: pain with activity, fear of movement, and dynamic inflammatory response to movement.

Tony Sung, MD (Division of Hematologic Malignancies and Cellular Therapy/Dept. of Medicine)
High intensity interval training to improve pre- and peri-transplant function and outcomes

    1. Research focuses on strategies to reduce complications of HCT and ranges from preclinical studies using murine models of HCT to Phase 1 and Phase 2 clinical trials. Areas of interest include the role of the microbiota (the trillions of bacteria living in and on our bodies), nutrition, and exercise in modulating HCT outcomes such as graft-versus-host disease (GVHD) and infections.


Since its inception, the Duke Pepper Center has produced an impressive portfolio of relevant research and innovations in faculty development. One of its many accomplishments is support and mentoring of numerous promising investigators whose careers focus on relevant aging related research at Duke. In 2009, in recognition of the contributions of these young investigators, career development and pilot project awardees, the Duke Pepper Center established a Duke Pepper Scholars Program.

eleanor-mcconnellAs an undergraduate nursing student at Duke, I vividly recall preparing for “the dreaded nursing home rotation:” an experience that was widely heralded as involving a LOT of hard work with little reward–the antithesis of the high-tech Duke we all embraced.   Our preparation was a combination of “handoffs” from other nursing students regarding the idiosyncrasies of the residents in our care, and, pivotally, a guest lecture from Dr. Virginia Stone about age-related changes in the sensory system and how we could use that knowledge to improve our ability to communicate with these vulnerable older adults.   Our predictions about the effort required by the rotation were well-founded; however, no one could have predicted the tremendous impact of that experience on my clinical and research career.   For a young health professional-in-training, the nursing home held a treasure trove of lessons about complex chronic illness, family dynamics, and health care policy, and showcased the vital influence of nursing practice on outcomes of care for frail older adults.  A student-led elective on successful aging, to which Dr. George Maddox contributed, and a community health rotation in the United Kingdom exposed me to important alternative models of care for frail elders that opened up the possibility of a career in geriatrics where I could make a difference.

After holding a series of clinical positions in both residential long-term care and geriatric community mental health, I joined the faculty of the fledgling Program on Aging at University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill (UNC-CH).  There I learned the power of interdisciplinary team collaboration with medicine, social work, and rehabilitation professionals, who worked together to infuse geriatrics content into health professions curricula, provide clinical consultations in primary care, and engage with community partners to provide alternatives to nursing home care – work that I pursue to this day as co-leader of Duke’s newly funded Geriatric Workforce Enhancement Project (GWEP).  I launched my research career with Drs. Virginia Neelon and Mary Champagne, as we led the first NIH-funded study at UNC-CH School of Nursing, focused on describing the natural history of acute confusion (delirium) in hospitalized elders. The NEECHAM scale, one of the first clinical measures of delirium was developed during this study, along with additional important insights such as the vulnerability of delirious patients to under-nutrition while hospitalized.  Under the mentorship of Dr. Carol Clarke Hogue, I completed my PhD in nursing examining the combined effects of cognitive and physical impairment on disability among nursing homes residents with dementia.  During this time, I returned to the “Duke orbit” by accepting a position with Dr. Stephanie Studenski, as a Clinical Nurse Specialist on an inpatient rehabilitation service at the Durham Veterans Affairs (VA) Medical Center, later transitioning to a position within the Durham VA’s Geriatric Research, Education and Clinical Center (GRECC).   Today I continue my work at the Durham GRECC as a core investigator.  I also serve as a tenured Associate Professor at the Duke University School of Nursing, and Director of the Duke Geriatric Nursing Center of Excellence, a member of the John A. Hartford national CGNE network,  a focal point for integrating scholarship in research, education, and clinical practice in nursing care of older adults at Duke.  One of the signature accomplishments of the Duke CGNE has been the development of the Duke NICHE (Nurses Improving Care of Health System Elders) programs, in partnership with colleagues in the Duke University Health System.

Two overarching aims drive my current research program:  (1) How best to design, implement, and evaluate care approaches to improve the quality of life of older adults who have major neurocognitive disorders, and (2) How best to accelerate the process of implementing scientific discoveries in residential long-term care to improve resident outcomes.  To address those aims, I am engaged in a variety of interprofessional research and education teams. Three ongoing studies illustrate how my program of research is unfolding.  One study I currently lead focuses on establishing the feasibility of preparing master trainers to teach direct care staff Adaptive Dementia Care skills in governmentally-run nursing homes in the US and in China.  Funded by the School of Nursing’s NIH-funded ADAPT Center, this study examines the amount of time required to teach registered nurses how to observe behavior sequences and adapt their care approach based on patient behavioral responses to specific approach and cueing techniques during basic care.  Ultimately, the goal is to develop a scalable approach to teaching caregivers essential person-centered dementia care skills, taking into account cultural differences in the dementia care experience.  Key collaborators on this study include Cheng Yun, Chief Nursing Officer at Huadong Hospital, one of the top geriatric hospitals in China, and Dr. Bei Wu, Director of International Research at the Duke School of Nursing.  This project is helping to lay the foundation for ongoing collaborations between the School of Nursing and other key academic partners, including Duke Kunshan University (DKU) in China.

A second ongoing study, funded by the VA’s Health Services Research and Development (HSR&D) Quality Improvement Research Initiative (QUERI), for which I serve as site-principal investigator, involves a mixed-method, multi-center study, to examine the processes required to implement a home safety toolkit (HST) for Veterans who have dementia.  Disciplines involved include advanced practice geriatric nursing, neurology, occupational therapy, and systems engineering.  In a prior randomized trial, the HST was effective in improving caregiver self-efficacy and reducing caregiver burden.   We are now examining clinical processes to promote rapid dissemination of this toolkit among primary care providers within two regions in the Veterans Health Administration (VHA).  The ultimate goal of this work is to understand processes that support rapid adoption of evidence-based dementia care practices within large, integrated health care systems.

A third line of research, conducted in collaboration with Duke School of Nursing faculty colleagues Drs. Kirsten Corazzini and Lisa Day, concerns strengthening nursing practice in nursing homes at the clinical microsystem-level, to prevent avoidable hospitalizations.  Building on work supported with funding from the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) that supported a Dementia Grand Challenge to motivate improvements in care of people with dementia by linking continuing education learners, pre-professional learners, and faculty, we were approached by a nursing home corporate leader to assist with teaching nursing staff assessment skills to increase their capacity to prevent avoidable hospitalization among their residents with dementia.  Dr. Day, who is an expert in situated learning, developed a continuing education series, using narrative pedagogy and unfolding cases to teach nursing home staff how to more effectively use approaches from INTERACT-II: a national program to prevent avoidable hospitalization.  Early results are promising, and have led to a recent NIH submission by Drs. Corazzini and Vogelsmeier (University of Missouri) to study these approaches in a multi-state trial.

My colleagues and I welcome the opportunity to work with undergraduate students, graduate students, post-doctoral fellows, and faculty from a variety of professions and disciplines who share our passion for generating and implementing research-based approaches to address the many challenges facing older adults who live with major neurocognitive disorders and other complex chronic illnesses that lead to a need for long-term care.
