Dr. Magaziner is an epidemiologist with experience conducting population-based studies. Dr. Magaziner has been studying issues of health and health care outcomes for over 30 years and has focused my attention on improving the quality of care of older persons. Most of his research has been directed at identifying the consequences of hip fracture and on developing and evaluating the effects of interventions to improve outcomes. Dr. Magaziner collaborates with other internationally recognized researchers and clinical experts on methods to collectively advance hip fracture care for older persons. Dr. Magaziner is recognized for my ability to bring multidisciplinary research teams involving basic, clinical, and population scientists together to address important and complex problems related to health, disability, and long-term care in older persons. Dr. Magaziner led a Division of Gerontology in the Department of Epidemiology and Public Health (EPH) from 1986 – 2013 and has led the Department of EPH since 2007. Also, Dr. Magaziner leads the Center for Research on Aging at the University of Maryland, Baltimore, and am PI of the UM-Claude D. Pepper Older Americans Independence Center. Dr. Magaziner has been continuously funded by the National Institute on Aging (NIIA) since 1983, and my work on hip fracture recovery has earned me two consecutive MERIT Awards from the NIA.
