Funding Opportunity: Johns Hopkins Older Americans Independence Center Awards, Deadline March 1

The deadline for proposals is Sunday, March 1 by 5 pm.

The Johns Hopkins Claude D. Pepper Older Americans Independence Center (OAIC) is seeking proposals from faculty researchers for studies on frailty in older Americans, with discovery aimed at impacting the larger field of frailty science, as articulated in the attached requests for proposals.

There are four award opportunities:

  • Research Education Core Funding for Junior Faculty ($35,000 direct costs)
  • Pilot/Exploratory Studies Core Funding ($30,000 direct costs)
  • Biostatistics Core Development Project Funding ($35,000 direct costs)
  • Biological Mechanisms Development Project Funding ($35.000 direct costs)

Successful applicants will receive salary, research core support, and mentorship in aging and frailty research (biological, clinical, translational, and epidemiological) through the OAIC’s cores.

OAIC-supported faculty members have been extraordinarily successful in recent years, with a strong record of subsequent grant awards that stem directly from the science produced as part of OAIC support.
