The Glenn Center for the Biology of Aging at Stanford University is focused on the fundamental biological processes that drive cellular, tissue, and organismal aging, with a particular emphasis on stem cell aging. The Program in Aging is a consortium that involves Glenn Center investigators who bring diverse backgrounds and areas of expertise to the study of the biology of aging and the determinants of longevity.

Support for the Center comes from the Glenn Foundation for Medical Research, dedicated to extending the healthy productive years of life through research on the mechanisms of biological aging.

The Glenn Center is based within the Stanford University School of Medicine but has faculty affiliates at other Schools at Stanford University, including the School of Humanities and Sciences and the School of Engineering. The Glenn Center is also closely aligned with the Stanford Center on Longevity.
