Research Development Core Mentoring Program

Several mentoring activities are organized under the Research Development Core of the Nathan Shock Center for Excellence in the Basic Biology of Aging. Senior faculty associated with Shock Center and the Barshop Institute are available to assist with the following mentoring activities:

  • Assisting successful applicants of the Pilot Project Program to use findings resulting from their award to obtain major extramural awards;
  • Assisting unsuccessful applicants to the Pilot Project Program to improve their grant applications;
  • Assisting any faculty interested in aging with grant applications that focus on the Basic Biology of Aging;
  • Facilitating cooperation between basic science faculty whose research has translational aspects in biomedical gerontology with clinicians whose expertise is relevant to the topic of translational research.

Any faculty member wishing to know more about these activities is encouraged to contact the Research Development Core Leader, Dr. Peter Hornsby (
