Pilot and Exploratory Studies Scholars Program

Our Program

The Pilot and Exploratory Studies Program is created by the Pilot and Exploratory Studies Core of the UCSF Pepper Center which identifies, supports, and nurtures multidisciplinary investigators who would like to expand their research with aging research. The Pilot and Exploratory Studies Core facilitates the development and progress of innovative research for faculty relating to the Pepper Center focus on the predictors, characteristics, and outcomes of late-life disability, especially in vulnerable older populations.
