The Claude D. Pepper Older Americans Independence Center (OAIC) at UConn is one of fifteen such centers throughout the United States funded by the National Institutes on Aging.  “Pepper Centers” honor Claud D. Pepper, the late Senator who advocated for senior health and research to enable older adults to maintain or restore their independence.  The overarching goal of the OAIC (Pepper) Program is to enhance function and independence in older adults through research.  The UConn Pepper Center is pioneering a theme focused on Precision Gerontology, an approach to aging research that seeks to render interventions enhancing function and independence more effective through an improved understanding of heterogeneity and more precise targeting.
