Interorgan Communication in Aging (GSA Webinar Series on NACA Priority Research Concepts)

January 31, 2023

One of the National Advisory Council on Aging (NACA) approved concepts from September 2022 has recently published a Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) that invites applications to examine the molecular mechanisms and consequences of age-related alterations in interorgan communication. Elucidation of the mechanisms that modulate and coordinate organ interactions—and their changes with age—may provide new insights into multimorbidities. Additionally, such research may provide a broader understanding of the complexity and heterogeneity of aging. Learn more about this FOA and the opportunity for live Q&A with National Institute on Aging (NIA) administrators.

Presented by:

  • John P. Williams, PhD, Health Science Administrator, NIA Division of Aging Biology
  • Amanda Boyce, PhD, Health Scientist Administrator, NIA Division of Aging Biology
  • Hongwei Gao, MD, PhD, Health Scientist Administrator, NIA Division of Aging Biology
  • Mulualem Tilahun, PhD, Health Scientist Administrator, NIA Division of Aging Biology
  • Gustavo Duque, MD, PhD, FRACP, FGSA, Biological Sciences Editor-in-Chief, The Journals of Gerontology, Series A (moderator)

Introduction to the Congressionally Directed Medical Research Programs Funding (GSA Grant Chats Series)

January 19, 2023

The Congressionally Directed Medical Research Programs (CDMRP) oversees the investment of USA congressionally directed dollars to fund groundbreaking, high-impact, high-risk, high-reward, meritorious research that targets critical research gaps to institutions across the globe. Looking to transform healthcare, CDMRP supports research in over 30 different programs focusing on diseases, disorders, injuries, and conditions ranging from cancers and neurological disorders to orthotics and prosthetics. CDMRP program managers will provide an overview of CDMRP and introduce funding opportunities. Attendees will be able to engage in live question-and-answer interaction with program managers and a grant recipient to help understand the opportunities available for supporting research.

Presented by:

How and Why to Apply for GSA’s Summer Policy Internship: A Conversation With GSA’s 2022 Policy Interns

January 13, 2023

Are you a graduate student interested in aging policy or learning about how research can contribute to policies affecting the health and well-being of older adults? Are you an advisor whose student is interested in aging policy? Join the 2022 Summer Policy Interns and Trish D’Antonio, Vice President of Policy and Professional Affairs, as they discuss the responsibilities and opportunities of GSA’s Summer Policy Internship in this informational session. Learn more about how the 8-week professional development experience in Washington, DC, exposes interns to policymaking and policy, legislative, and regulatory affairs that impact older adults. Hear how previous interns participated in aging-related policy at the national level and how their internship experience informs their research and career trajectories today. Get your questions answered about whether the internship is right for you and find out how to apply for the 2023 season.
