Paul B. Beeson Patient-Oriented Research Career Development Award in Aging

Purpose – These initiatives provides two different goals: 1) RFA AG-11-008- three to five years of mentored career development support to clinically trained faculty members in strong research environments to enable them to gain skills and experience in basic aging (i.e., not patient-oriented) research under the guidance of a mentor or mentors, and to establish an independent program of research in this field. 2) RFA AG-11-009- three to five years of mentored career development support to clinically trained faculty members in strong research environments to enable them to gain skills and experience in patient-oriented research on aging under the guidance of a mentor or mentors, and to establish an independent program of research in this field. Both programs include an annual meeting that allows opportunities to partner with national mentors and fellow awardees.

Subjective Well-being: Advances in Measurement and Applications to Aging (R01)

Purpose – This initiative solicits Research Project Grant (R01) applications from institutions/organizations that propose to advance the application of well-being measurement to the integrated study of experienced and evaluative well-being in aging-relevant contexts. This FOA is intended to capitalize on recent advances in (a) approaches to measurement of both experienced well-being (e.g. reports of momentary positive and rewarding, or negative and distressing states) and evaluative well-being (e.g., cognitive judgments of overall life satisfaction or dissatisfaction); (b) understanding of psychological changes associated with aging that might impact these experiences and evaluations; and (c) global interest in well-being measurement as a critical index of the success or failure of economic, social and health policies.

Regional and International Differences in Health and Longevity at Older Ages (R01)

Purpose – This initiative solicits applications from institutions/organizations proposing to advance knowledge on the reasons behind the divergent trends that have been observed in health and longevity at older ages, both across industrialized/high life expectancy nations and across geographical areas in the United States. This FOA is intended to capitalize on provocative findings in the literature which have gone unexplained to date. This FOA is also intended to capitalize on NIA’s investment in the development of cross-nationally comparable datasets that can be harnessed to study these research questions; these include the Health and Retirement Study (HRS), the English Longitudinal Study on Ageing (ELSA), and the Survey of Health, Ageing and Retirement in Europe (SHARE).

Identification and Characterization of Molecular Targets Within the mTOR Pathway With Potential to Impact Healthspan and Lifespan (R21)

Purpose – This initiative encourages grant applications focused on identifying novel targets within the mTOR (mammalian target of rapamycin) signaling network, the manipulation of which has the potential to promote healthy aging, i.e. extend health span in the aged. Identification and characterization of targets can utilize a wide range of approaches, including medicinal chemistry, in vitro assays, and studies in lower organisms or mammalian models. While this pathway has been studied extensively in many cancers, its role in aging is still poorly understood.

Purpose – This initiative invite applications for R01 awards to support Bioengineering Research Partnerships (BRPs) for basic, applied, and translational multi-disciplinary research that addresses important biological, clinical or biomedical research problems. In the context of this program, a partnership is a multi-disciplinary research team, that applies an integrative, systems approach to develop knowledge and/or methods to prevent, detect, diagnose, or treat disease or to understand health and behavior.

Climate Change and Health: Assessing and Modeling Population Vulnerability to Climate Change (R21)

Purpose – This initiative encourages research applications to examine the differential risk factors of populations that lead to or are associated with increased vulnerability to exposures, diseases and other adverse health outcomes related to climate change. Applications may involve either applied research studies that address specific hypotheses about risk factors or population characteristics associated with increased vulnerability, or research projects to develop general models or methods for identifying and characterizing population vulnerability to climate change. The ultimate goal of this research program is to help inform climate change adaptation and public health interventions to reduce current and future vulnerability of various populations to the health effects of climate change.

Structural Biology of Membrane Proteins (R01)

Purpose – This initiative encourages grant applications from institutions/organizations that propose to develop research and methods to enhance the rate of membrane protein structure determination and to determine specific membrane protein structures. Innovative methods for expression, oligomerization, solubilization, stabilization, purification, characterization, crystallization, isotopic labeling, and structure determination of unique and biologically significant membrane proteins by x-ray diffraction, nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR), electron microscopy, mass spectrometry, and other biophysical techniques are encouraged.

Advancing Novel Science in Women’s Health Research (ANSWHR) (R21)

Purpose – This initiative promote innovative, interdisciplinary research that will advance new concepts in women’s health research and the study of sex/gender differences. Recent research reports have established the importance of studying issues specific to women, including the scientific and clinical importance of analyzing data separately for females and males.

Development of Assays for High-Throughput screening for use in Probe and Pre-therapeutic Discovery (R01)

Purpose – This initiative encourages Research Project Grant (R01) applications from institutions/organizations that propose the development of assays for high throughput screening (HTS) relevant to processes and diseases specific to its mission with the intent of using them to screen for small molecule compounds that show desired properties as probes for use in advancing knowledge about the relevant target, identifying new targets, or serving as pre-therapeutic leads.
