Resources and Funding Opportunities 

Frailty Assessment Tool
In an attempt to standardize the practice of frailty assessment and the computing algorithm, this Online Frailty Assessment Tool was developed by the Johns Hopkins Older Americans Independence Center to maximize the inference validity for cross-study comparisons or meta analysis.  To learn more about the Frailty Assessment Tool, please click here

Training Resources for Junior Faculty
The JHU OAIC works closely with numerous educational initiatives at Johns Hopkins University to offer outstanding research and clinical training to all of investigators interested in frailty research.  To learn more about available training resources, please click here

Clinical Translation Unit
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. 

Requests for Proposals (OAIC Funding Opportunities)
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.
