Ursula M. Staudinger announced the arrival of three new research scientists at the Robert N. Butler Columbia Aging Center. David Weiss, PhD, will join the research team as assistant professor of Sociomedical Sciences and Anne K. Reitz, PhD, as post-doctoral research scientist in psychology. Dr. Ruth Finkelstein begins in April as the Associate Director of the CAC’s International Longevity Center. “The Columbia Aging Center’s ability to study and promote healthy and productive aging takes on new dimensions as we welcome these new researchers,” said Ursula Staudinger. All three will contribute to the Columbia Aging Center’s mission to better understand the aging process and its implications for societies with longer lifespans seeking to maximize productivity, quality of life, and healthcare.
