The National Institute on Aging Claude D. Pepper Older American Independence Centers (OAIC) and Coordinating Center program establishes "centers of excellence" in geriatrics research and training. The OAIC awards develop or strengthen each awardee institution's programs that focus and sustain progress on a key area in aging research. Each area of focus is one in which progress could contribute to greater independence for older persons and offer opportunities for training and career development in aging research for young scientists. The ultimate goal is to enhance translation of basic and developmental research on aging to applications and interventions that increase or maintain independence for older persons.

Because MU is limited to one application in response to this RFA, letters of intent must be submitted to the Office of Research,, no later than 4:00 pm Friday, March 2, 2007. Letters of intent for an OAIC should be limited to 3 pages and should include a summary of plans for 1) the focus or theme of the Center, 2) leadership/administrative core, 3) research career development core, 4) resource cores, and, if applicable, 5) pilot/exploratory studies cores, and/or 6) coordinating center. Letters of intent for a stand-alone Coordinating Center should be limited to 3 pages and should summarize plans for 1) logistic support to the OAIC sites and the NIA program administrator, 2) an OAIC website, 3) shared resources, 4) logistic and educational support for OAIC trainees; and 5) fostering communications, cooperative arrangements, and collaborative projects.
