The Aging, Metabolism, and Emotions (AME) Center is at the UCSF Center for Health and Community. AME researchers study a range of topics on how people can thrive in both mind and body, especially when under severe adversity (poverty, caregiving, work stress, depression). We conduct basic translational and intervention research with the goal of improving healthspan, from conception to our golden years. We are particularly interested in resilience to aging, enhancing coping and emotion regulation, and daily lifestyle (optimizing restorative behaviors of sleep, activity, social connectivity, purpose in life). Our website shares projects, publications, events, and highlights new findings and opportunities. Join our newsletter to stay connected!
