The deadline for applications has been extended until August 10th for Taking the Next Step: Grants Technical Assistance Workshop. The workshop is an interactive forum for pre- and post-doctoral students and recent recipients of Ph.D., M.D., or related doctoral degrees with the National Institute on Aging, the world's largest funding source for research on aging and geriatrics. During this intensive 1.5 day workshop attendees will gain an understanding of the NIH grants process from application to award, and NIA staff will discuss research priorities and opportunities in the basic biology of aging, neuroscience, behavioral and social research and clinical geriatrics and gerontology. Attendees will have the opportunity to meet in small groups with NIA staff representative of their field of interest. A session focused on research and funding opportunities in health disparities and aging will highlight this GSA pre-conference workshop.
