The mission of the Pepper Research Network on Aging (PRNA) is to promote and foster inclusion of older adults living in the community and across the continuum of care in University of Pittsburgh research studies. The PRNA maintains two registries that recruits and enrolls older adults who are willing to be contacted about potential research opportunites.
For Community Members
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. The National Institutes of Health and the University of Pittsburgh have developed the Claude D. Pepper Research Center to study mobility and balance in older Americans.
The purpose of this registry is to collect a list of volunteers interested in participating in research studies on aging, balance and mobility.
Participants will be contacted about potential research studies they may be eligible for in order to decide if they want to participate in those studies. Studies may include physical therapy, fall and fracture prevention, medications, and age-related issues.
Interested in enrolling? Please contact Dr. Steven Albert at 412-383-8693 or e-mail him here.
