Claude Pepper Center

Dr. Carr will work to develop a framework for increasing interdisciplinary scholarship at FSU. Her goal is to develop infrastructure and an initial project to catalyze expertise in aging across our three institute/centers (i.e., the Pepper Institute on Aging and Public Policy, the Claude Pepper Center, and the Institute for Successful Longevity; hereafter “FSU aging centers”). This work will include developing and working with an advisory board, planning a multidisciplinary conference, and developing a pilot project based on the conference workshop to test the proposed direction with a team of research experts. The purpose will be to build a foundation for a large NIH research grant application and development of a larger program of research.
