Transition to Aging Research for Predoctoral Students

NIA invites outstanding graduate students from a wide range of broad research areas including, but not limited to, statistics, neuroscience, physics, immunology, microbiology, informatics, data sciences, and engineering who are interested in receiving aging-related postdoctoral training to apply for this award.

The purpose of the Transition to Aging Research Award for Predoctoral Students is to increase, retain, and diversify the pool of trainees in aging and geriatric research.

This two-phase award will allow awardees to complete doctoral dissertation projects and provide a variety of training supports to facilitate smooth transition of doctoral graduates into competitive, aging-focused postdoctoral positions.

This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) does not allow applicants to propose to lead an independent clinical trial, but does allow applicants to propose research experience in a clinical trial led by a sponsor or co-sponsor.
