Older Americans Independence Center Request for Proposals

The JHU Claude D. Pepper Older Americans Independence Center (OAIC) is seeking proposals from faculty researchers for studies related to frailty and late-life decline. Successful applicants would receive salary, research core support and mentorship in aging and frailty research (biological, clinical, translational and epidemiological) through one of the following OAIC funding mechanisms:

  • OAIC Pilot/Exploratory Studies Core (Pilot studies)
  • OAIC Biostatistics Core (Development project)
  • OAIC Biological Mechanisms Core (Development project)

OAIC-supported faculty members have been extraordinarily successful over the past 5 years, with a strong record of subsequent K or R awards that stem directly from the science and career enhancement produced as part of OAIC support.

The deadline for applications is Friday July 10 at 5 p.m. For more information, click here: or contact Brian Buta, OAIC administrator at
