I love how everyone at the Buck is passionate about the same mission. So many perspectives and such different expertise, but we’re all a team, a family, united by geroscience and working towards the same goals.
Some 20 years young, we are the world’s first biomedical research institution devoted solely to research on aging. Everything we do revolves around our commitment to helping people live better longer.
The Buck was a pioneer in research on aging, and now we’re a global leader in the field. We opened our doors in 1999, becoming the world’s only research institution singularly focused on the biology of aging, yielding insights into age-related diseases before they start. We hire scientists from a variety of disciplines to attack the problem from all sides because the answers we’re after won’t come from a single field. To enhance our process, we worked with world-renowned architect I.M. Pei to create a campus that literally would not allow our researchers to work in silos.
We believe it is possible for people to enjoy their lives at 95 as much as they do at 25, and to achieve that, we’re seeking a more comprehensive understanding of the biology of aging itself.
We are grateful every day to be working in such a beautiful place, and try to make sure to look up from our lab benches to soak in the beauty of our I.M. Pei – designed campus.
We look forward to getting to know you!
