Developing a Research Trajectory

December 2, 2021

Grant funding is an indispensable step to conduct the work needed to advance the science of gerontology and promote optimal experiences of aging. Obtaining funding can protect precious time to pursue the topics that are of greatest interest to you, advance your career, facilitate training, and improve your prospects for future grant funding. This grant writing series of 1-hour virtual sessions is designed to help you win grants through bolstering a broad range of grantsmanship skills specifically tailored to your work as a gerontologist researcher. GSA Grant Chats will feature panel discussions with peers, experienced researchers, and leaders in gerontology and will offer the opportunity to connect with and learn from a wide spectrum of experts in aging science. Topics range from developing a research trajectory that looks beyond a single funding opportunity to insider tips for successful applications. Join us for what promises to be engaging and rich conversations with takeaways for gerontologists at all career stages.
