  • Track: Research
  • CME/CE: 1.0

Sponsored by the National Institute on Aging for new and early stage researchers in cooperation with the AGS Research Committee 
Moderator: Marie A. Bernard, MD
The symposium is intended for investigators with current research training or career development awards, including “T,” “F,” or “K” funding, or GEMSSTARs.  It is also intended for individuals who are interested in learning about these types of grant opportunities. The session targets the needs of new and early career investigators by providing an overview of NIA’s extramural research programs and initiatives, including a focus on emerging opportunities across NIA for Alzheimer’s and related dementias research. Funding and training opportunities, the Center for Scientific Review grants review process, and experiences of an early career researcher will also be featured. Participants will have an opportunity to meet and consult with representatives from NIA.   Learning Objectives: (1) describe the NIA mission and extramural divisions supporting early stage investigators in clinical, biomedical, neuroscience, and behavioral and social research; (2) discuss recent policy changes which affect the funding environment; (3) identify NIA’s resources for research training and grant application; and (4) meet with representatives of NIA.
