Yale Pepper Older Americans 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 multifactorial geriatric¬† conditions¬†
  • by advancing the science of clinical decision making in multimorbid older adults
  • by educating and training new investigators in research on aging from a multifactorial perspective

Funding Opportunity

The Yale Pepper Center is soliciting Letters of Intent (LOI) from full-time faculty members at Yale with interests and expertise relevant to aging research who would be interested in submitting a career development proposal (if currently within 4 years of first faculty appointment), a pilot project proposal, or a research development project proposal. The scope of work to be supported by the Yale Pepper Center encompasses basic, translational, epidemiological, clinical trail, health services, informatics, and gerontological biostatistics research. Below you will find the LOI submission materials.
