The Johns Hopkins Older Americans Independence Center (OAIC) solicits proposals to support of scientific projects and junior investigators in research on frailty in aging. The OAIC is a Johns Hopkins-wide Center, funded by the National Institute on Aging's Center on Aging and Health, to support the development of research on the etiology of frailty as a basis for developing treatments or approaches to prevention of frailty in older adults.
Scientists with an interest in developing pilot projects in this area or with needs for support of biostatistical or genetic analyses of data related to frailty, as well as junior faculty seeking protected time to develop investigative careers in this field, are encouraged to apply for internal funding through the OAIC mechanisms.
