Professor Peter Harmer has been awarded a $3,240,000 grant from the National Institute of Aging to continue his meaningful and productive research collaboration with Dr. Fuzhong Li at the Oregon Research Institute. This substantial award will cover a 5-year study on the cost-effectiveness of the evidence-based fall prevention program the two investigators have developed.

Their work over the last fifteen years has resulted in research awards exceeding $15 million and several prestigious publications, including a recent paper in the New England Journal of Medicine.

This award highlights the quality of Peter’s work, and constitutes one more milestone in his outstanding record of scholarship.

Congratulations Prof. Harmer for this remarkable accomplishment!
