Welcome to the

Network for Innovative Methods in Longitudinal Aging Studies (NIMLAS)!

NIMLAS is a research network of internationally-renowned methodological and substantive experts who are actively researching the benefits of new data collection methodologies for longitudinal studies of aging in response to recent societal developments. The network will meet regularly to shape methodological innovations specifically for the measurement of aging populations and design studies that will produce evidence-based best practices for this type of longitudinal measurement. Via a coordinated international program of training, consulting, thematic working group meetings, and pilot research projects, NIMLAS aims to set the agenda for methodological research on longitudinal studies of aging and protect investments of the National Institute on Aging in population-representative longitudinal studies by maximizing their methodological quality.
