Research Interests:

Dr. Magaziner pursues research in aging in three interrelated areas: the consequences of hip fracture; population health and health outcomes; and methods for studying older populations. The major focus of this work is to identify ways of enhancing functioning and improving the quality of life for older persons. The specific condition which Dr. Magaziner has targeted is hip fracture. Studies include examining changes in bone and muscle following hip fracture, changes in bone turnover, hip fracture outcomes in men, and the design and implementation of interventions to improve outcomes from hip fracture.
