The University of Pittsburgh Claude D. Pepper Older Americans Independence Center is one of fourteen Centers throughout the United States funded by the National Institute on Aging. The Pepper Center promotes independence among older Americans 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. We strive to increase scientific knowledge that will lead to better ways to maintain or restore independence to older persons.
Are you or someone you know over the age of 60, still living independently, and interested in participating in age-related research? You or they may be eligible to enroll in the Pepper Center Research Registry for older adults.
