Richard Schulz, PhD, is Professor of Psychiatry, Psychology, Epidemiology, Sociology, and Health and Rehabilitation Sciences, and Director of the University Center for Social and Urban Research, at the University of Pittsburgh. He is also Associate Director of the Institute on Aging at the University of Pittsburgh. He received his AB in Psychology from Dartmouth College and his PhD in Social Psychology from Duke University.

He is the recipient of several honors, including the Kleemeier Award for Research on Aging from the Gerontological Society of America, and the Developmental Health Award for Research on Health in Later Life from the American Psychological Association. He also served as Editor of the "Journal of Gerontology: Psychological Sciences". He has spent his entire career doing research and writing on adult development and aging. Funded by numerous NIH institutes for more than two decades, his research has focused on social-psychological aspects of aging, including the role of control as a construct for characterizing life-course development, and the impact of disabling late life disease on patients and their families. This body of work is reflected in publications, which have appeared in major medical ("JAMA, NEJM"), psychology ("Psychological Review, Psychological Bulletin, JPSP"), and aging ("Journal of Gerontology, Psychology and Aging, JAGS, AJGS") journals. He is the Editor-in-Chief of "The Encyclopedia of Aging: Fourth Edition" (Springer Publishing, 2006).
