The National Institute on Aging has created this new award to provide support for more senior investigators who have the expertise and leadership skills to improve the curricula and enhance the aging-related research capacity within their academic institution to leverage recent advances in basic, clinical and behavioral research in aging in order to advance scientific momentum in the field. The Leadership candidate must have acknowledged scientific expertise and leadership skills and sufficient clinical training, research, or teaching experience in the academic area of interest to an NIH awarding component to implement a program of curriculum development within the sponsoring institution. The investigator is expected to build on existing infrastructure including the development or enhancement of existing curricula in an area or subfield of research on aging at their institution and provide leadership in the establishment of an emerging scientific discipline in aging and geriatrics, drawing on the strengths of his/her institution, its faculty and resources. Funding may be used to support a particular institution or to build a research area through networked investigators or institutions.
Deadline: standard dates apply.
