Grants for Early Medical/Surgical Specialists’ Transition to Aging Research (GEMSSTAR) (R03)


National Institutes of Health


The goal of the GEMSSTAR FOA is to provide support for early-stage physician-scientists, trained in medical or surgical specialties, to launch careers as future leaders in research on aging or in geriatrics.

To achieve this goal, the GEMSSTAR FOA provides small grants to conduct transdisciplinary research on aging or in geriatrics research that will yield pilot data for subsequent aging- or geriatrics-focused research projects. As part of its focus on faciltating the development of early-stage physician-scientists who will become leaders in research on aging or in geriatrics, the GEMSSTAR FOA seeks to encourage the provision of supportive environments for candidates, and NIA will consider the extent to which a supportive environment is available to candidates in selecting GEMSSTAR candidates.


Disciplinary Category: Medical - Basic Science; Medical - Clinical Science; Medical - Translational; Multidisciplinary.

Applicant Type:


Awardees must be physicians (i.e., those with M.D., D.O., or equivalent degrees) who have completed training in their medical or surgical specialty. These specialties include, but are not limited to, the traditional medical and surgical specialties, anesthesiology, emergency medicine, family medicine, general internal medicine, general surgery, geriatrics, hospital medicine, neurology, obstetrics/gynecology, palliative medicine, physiatry/rehabilitation medicine, and psychiatry. This award is not intended for individuals with substantial experience in aging research. Moreover, it is generally expected that applicants will have not had prior research funding as an independent PD/PI on a major NIH grant (e.g., R01, P01), though they may have had support through institutional awards, such as institutional career development awards (K12, KL2), or Older Americans Independence Center Research Career Development Core awards (OAIC RCDC).

A candidate in their last year of specialty training is eligible to apply provided that the candidate’s institution has committed to appointing him/her to a faculty position no later than the start of award funding (July / August, 2015). Faculty appointments that are contingent on receiving a GEMSSTAR award are not acceptable.

Except in unusual circumstances, it is expected that GEMSSTAR applications will have a single PD/PI, and that other personnel will be listed as collaborators or consultants. In multiple PD(s)/PI(s) applications, all PD(s)/PI(s) must be eligible for the GEMSSTAR program.
