IDAC’s world renowned research facilities are spread across three buildings and divided into seven divisions. Within these division are a total of twenty-two laboratories collaborating with one another to achieve “smart-aging”. In addition, IDAC has three special facilities within the institute: the Cell Resource Center for Biomedical Research, the Smart Aging Research Center (S.A.R.C.) and the Pre-Clinical Research Center.
