The Research Development Core is a required component of the Nathan Shock Center. By providing support to Center faculty in the form of pilot grants, and salary/supplies to support emerging technologies in faculty research in aging, the Core acts to expand the scope of research in the basic biology of aging at UTHSCSA and to maintain the preeminence of this institution in the field of aging research. By mentoring new investigators, the Core helps to create the next generation of researchers in biological gerontology.
