Part 2. Section I. Funding Opportunity Description

 

The following information has been added:

The National Institute on Aging (NIA) supports a variety of training and career development opportunities for early-career investigators and clinician-researchers to meet the national biomedical, behavioral and clinical research needs. The National Alzheimer’s Project Act (NAPA) Advisory Council has identified major workforce gaps in dementia education and training. Due to demographic changes increasing the population of older adults, there is a greater demand for geriatric specialists appropriately trained in relevant research fields. NIA is interested in promoting the development of a diverse, interdisciplinary workforce needed to conduct clinical research to improve the prevention, diagnosis, treatment and care for Alzheimer's disease (AD) and Alzheimer's disease related dementias (ADRD). Applications would be appropriate for NIA if they support research exposure and advanced skills in AD/ADRD clinical research for medical residents and/or fellows. Research education activities can be in any topic areas related to AD/ADRD with relevance to: neuropathology, clinical assessments and diagnostic treatment, prevention, clinical care, health disparities, clinical neuroscience and translational research, including training in the design and conduct of clinical trials.
