Emerging researchers, including those with limited involvement in research on aging, are invited to apply for the next Butler-Williams Scholars Program (formerly the Summer Institute on Aging Research), to be held August 4-8, 2014, at the National Institutes of Health campus in Bethesda, MD.

Sponsored by NIA, the 5-day program will explore research design relative to aging, including issues relevant to racial/ethnic minorities and health disparities. The agenda will include:

  • lectures covering the biology of aging; genetics and Alzheimer’s disease; and health, behavior, and aging
  • discussion sessions focusing on methodological approaches and interventions
  • consultation on the development of research interests
  • advice on preparing and submitting research grant applications to NIA

Applications and letters of recommendation are due by March 28, 2014.
