The New England Centenarian Study (NECS) is the largest study of people aged 100 and older and their families in the world. We are a dynamic group of physician researchers, statisticians and post graduate research associates with varied interests regarding exceptional longevity. The study is based at the Boston University School of Medicine. There are several different studies all related to Centenarians and their offspring being conducted. The NECS believes that cultural and social diversity of our faculty, staff, and students is vitally important to the distinction and excellence of our research and academic programs. To that end, we are especially eager to have colleagues join us who support our institutional commitment to ensuring BU is inclusive, equitable, diverse, and a place where all constituents can thrive.
