The Population Aging Research Center (PARC) at the University of Pennsylvania was established in 1994 with a P30 grant from the National Institute on Aging, which fosters research on the demography and economics of health and aging. PARC research associates come from four schools, 16 academic departments, and three centers/institutes across the university, including Sociology, Economics, Anthropology, Business, Nursing, Medicine, etc. PARC also sponsors an annual pilot proposal competition and a weekly seminar series in conjunction with the Population Studies Center.
