NIA Funding / National Centers

The Claude D. Pepper Older Americans Independence Center Program was established in honor of the late Florida Senator, Claude D. Pepper to establish centers of excellence in geriatrics research and research career development to increase scientific knowledge leading to better ways to maintain or restore independence in older persons. The program is funded by the National Institute on Aging.

The University of Maryland Baltimore is one of 15 Pepper Centers located throughout the United States.  Each Center focuses on increasing scientific knowledge to support older adults maintain their independence.
