Yale Pepper Older American Independence Center
The Yale Pepper Older Americans Independence Center (OAIC) is an inter-departmental, multidisciplinary center. Our objectives are to promote the functional independence of older Americans:
- by increasing scientific knowledge related to multi-factorial geriatric health conditions,
- by advancing the science of clinical decision making in multi-morbid older adults, and
- by educating and training new investigators in research on aging from a multi-factorial perspective.
The POA/Pepper Center is currently composed of four cores:
The Yale OAIC is focused on developing, testing, and disseminating new strategies to preserve or restore the independence of older persons.
The overall goal of the Pilot/Exploratory Studies Core (PESC) is to facilitate the development of innovative and methodologically rigorous research studies.
The Research Career Development Core (RCDC) identifies highly promising early-stage investigators and supports their development as independent investigators and leaders in aging research.
