NIA Interests
The National Institute on Aging (NIA) solicits applications from researchers examining processes of aging at both the individual and societal levels, with emphasis placed on multilevel interactions across biological, psychological, behavioral and social levels of analysis to facilitate basic-applied translation in the promotion of healthy and adaptive aging. NIA priority areas for cross-training in the basic behavioral and social sciences include: application of genetic and genomic approaches to research questions in the behavioral and social sciences; integration of novel clinical, biological, physical, and functional biomarkers of healthy aging and ill health in midlife and older age in studies of behavioral and social processes; adaptation of methodological approaches for identifying biosocial connections; development of precise measures of behavioral, social, and biological processes that contribute to behavior change or to social determinants of health; incorporation of novel methods to capture temporal dynamics or contextual influences on social processes; and application of theory and methods in evolutionary biology, economics, psychology, social science, and/or neuroscience to the study of behavior change, decision making, and social behavior.
