At the Life Span Institute, our mission — to discover knowledge about human health and development — can only be achieved by problem-driven collaborations across many disciplines. The Life Span Institute stands at such a convergence. We bring together scientists who are affiliated with several academic departments and disciplines to collaboratively take on problems in human development and health.

Our research strengths include:

The Life Span Institute is externally sustained through grants and contracts, the state of Kansas, federal programs, and some private philanthropic support. The primary federal agencies supporting our research are Health and Human Services, the Department of Education, the National Science Foundation and the Department of Defense. In fiscal year 2019, research projects were awarded $30.7 million, the second-highest total in its history.
