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



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.
