The Claude D Pepper Older Americans Independence Centers Coordinating Center announces a request for applications for "rapid / freezer pilot studies."
The Pepper OAIC Coordinating Center is seeking proposals to accelerate progress for clinical and translational research projects. These projects are intended to be lean (<$7,500), efficient, and relatively short term in order to generate preliminary data for submission of collaborative extramural grant applications and/or high impact publications.
We particularly encourage novel uses of existing data, specimens (blood or tissue), or images from OAIC and aging-related research repositories.
The RCCN is seeking to fund two or more pilot or developmental projects that involve multiple NIA-sponsored research centers to foster new research in the area of Behavior Change to Benefit Older Adults including change in the behaviors of older adults, care givers, health care providers, health care delivery systems or neighborhoods. The RCCN has set aside $80,000 to fund at least 2 projects addressing this topic. Applications are due March 4, 2019 with awards announced by April 30, 2019.
