Needs more substance[edit]

I'm afraid I don't know anything about this Institute, and I didn't find much here. The article reads like a brochure. Isn't there more that can be added on studies and/or discoveries originated by the Institute and reactions in the scientific community to their published papers (whether positive or negative), studies that confirm or refute the Institute's work, that kind of thing.

Hmmm - as a matter of fact, the "Programs" section is a direct copy & paste from the NIA Mission statement page. This violates WP:Copy-paste and must be changed: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Copy-paste
"Programs
NIA sponsors research on aging through extramural and intramural programs. The extramural program funds research and training at universities, hospitals, medical centers, and other public and private organizations nationwide. The intramural program conducts basic and clinical research in Baltimore, MD, and on the NIH campus in Bethesda, MD."
