Pilot and Exploratory Studies Core

The Pilot/Exploratory Studies Core (PESC) develops key information to select and design original and independently funded studies that can advance our insight into the pathways that affect physical function in support of the Wake Forest OAIC theme: integrating pathways affecting physical function for new approaches to disability prevention. This goal will be achieved by soliciting and selecting, with the assistance of the joint scientific review panel, innovative and promising pilot and exploratory studies which address the OAIC research theme.  The PESC will then foster and promote the selected pilot and exploratory studies by providing the optimal infrastructure, environment, funding, expertise, and instrumentation via tight integration with the broad resources available from other OAIC cores as well as throughout Wake Forest University.
