One of the primary missions of the Pepper Center is to educate and train new investigators in the research on aging and disability, while developing their leadership qualities and roles. The UF OAIC supports a pool of junior and affiliated scholars who are involved in the research of projects in the OAIC cores, and receive direct mentoring from OAIC faculty members. The affiliate scholars serve as a pool for selecting and recruiting the most talented and promising future OAIC Junior Scholars.
