Purpose

The purpose of this Notice is to inform potential applicants that the National Institute on Aging (NIA) will participate, effective immediately, in RFA OD-19-001, “Botanical Dietary Supplements Research Centers (BDSRC) (U19 Clinical Trial Optional)".

Declines in resiliencies with advancing age can lead to adverse health outcomes. Thus, strategies for preserving or enhancing resiliencies in older adults are needed. NIA invites applications that propose to study botanical products with strong supporting evidence for modulating resiliencies to physical or psychosocial stressors in older adults. Research projects investigating differences in molecular-, cellular-, and/or organism-level responses of older adults’ resilience to complex botanical interventions would be considered appropriate.
