Pittsburgh Claude D. Pepper Older Americans Independence Center

Welcome...

The goal of the OAIC program is to increase scientific knowledge that will lead to better ways to maintain or restore independence to older persons. Our goal at the University of Pittsburgh center is to promote this independence by optimizing balance and mobility and reducing injurious falls through disciplined inquiry and translational research. We train young investigators from multiple disciplines within a vibrant intellectual and collaborative environment and serve as a resource and partner to other investigators, institutions and the public.
