Program Faculty

NOTE: This is only a partial list of faculty available to serve as mentors for the Duke Aging Center’s T32. If no one here seems to fit your interests, go to our list of the Center’s Senior Fellows.  Alternatively, you can go to Duke’s research directory at, find the box below EXPLORE, and enter key words from your research area. Be sure to include aging. After trying those alternatives, contact Dr. Hall at and ask her for alternative suggestions. Not every topic in aging research is covered at Duke, but if your interest isn’t available, Dr. Hall will try to suggest other connections.  You can click on each faculty member’s name below to view their Scholars@Duke profile.
