UF CAMPAS: Welcome to the University of Florida Center for Advancing Minority Pain & Aging Science

The goal of UF CAMPAS is to enhance the diversity of the aging research workforce by recruiting and training promising investigators from underrepresented backgrounds and supporting their mentored experiences conducting innovative social and behavioral research addressing pain and disability among older adults.

UF CAMPAS aims to meet two overarching goals

  1. Promote diversity of the aging research workforce by identifying, supporting, and mentoring promising investigators from underreprented backgrounds
  2. Enhance the health of older populations by conducing state-of-the-art interdisciplinary research investigating social and behavioral contributions to pain and disability in later life.

These aims are accomplished through the synergetic efforts of four cores:

  1. Administrative Core
