Research Development Core


The Oklahoma Nathan Shock Center of Excellence in the Biology of Aging provides access to expertise, instruments and facilities designed to ensure that investigators have access to cutting edge resources to solve the complex problems of aging and age-related disease. Researchers are invited to collaborate with our nationally recognized experts and use cores and resources that we have developed over the past 10-15 years. Collaborators can use the resources of the center at no cost by applying through the Research Development Core of the Oklahoma Shock Center on Aging. These NIA sponsored funds are typically reserved for junior faculty members at the early stages of their career, although senior investigators that are new to the aging field also may be eligible for funding. Alternatively, investigators can use the cores on a fee-for-service or collaborative basis after consultation with the director of the research core.

Our scientists can assist diverse scientific teams with integration of theory and the design of aging studies. In addition, the Oklahoma Nathan Shock Center has a high level of expertise in designing and writing grant applications. We are available to help you develop the highest quality science and obtain the most reliable results for your studies.
