The Duke Roybal Center
“Accelerating Translational Behavioral Intervention Research on Aging and Mobility.”
Our mission is to catalyze researchers across disciplines to develop and test innovative behavioral interventions to optimize mobility for older adults. These interventions will aim to foster independence and community participation, reduce unplanned health service use, and enhance quality of life. Our center aims are to (1) develop the next generation of scientists committed to programs of translational research using interventions grounded in behavioral or social science principles to improve mobility and promote independent living of older adults; (2) use an experiential learning-based approach to behavioral intervention development and implementation; and, (3) accelerate translation so interventions can be successfully developed, validated, and scaled across NIH Stage Model levels.
