University of Arkansas: Donald W. Reynolds Center on Aging and Expansion

Little Rock, Arkansas
The Reynolds Center on Aging is an interdisciplinary clinical and research center for gerontology medicine, science, and education.

Intended to accelerate and disseminate patient-oriented research, the Center on Aging will pioneer integrated therapeutics in the care of the aging. The Center was conceived as the first functioning model for translational geriatric medicine, in which the powerful new tools of genomic and structural biology are directly applied to patient outcomes in the clinic setting and at the bedside.

Within this single new building, the Medical Center provides a gerontology primary care and physical rehabilitation clinic; two floors of clinical and basic research laboratories; and library, classrooms, and lecture hall all equipped for video imaging and distance learning. Throughout the Center, the University committed resources for a sophisticated telecommunications infrastructure to connect students and faculty to colleagues and clinicians, not only via the Internet but also video connection in real time, to other sites in the Medical Center’s network.
