This Clinical Translation Unit (CTU) is located on the Bayview Medical Campus, which is the primary focus of the division’s clinical activities. The CTU provides infrastructure elements common to intervention frailty studies, including research assistants trained in the assessment of physical and cognitive frailty, information technology and nursing personnel. The CTU also maintains a registry of patients in the inpatient and outpatient geriatric facilities who are willing to consider participation in clinical and intervention studies.
The JHU OAIC offers annual to biennial support to junior faculty and researchers interested in frailty science, from etiological to interventional studies. To learn more about current funding opportunities within the OAIC, please click here.
