The goal of the Grants for Early Medical/Surgical Specialists’ Transition to Aging Research (GEMSSTAR) program is to promote future leaders in clinical aging research across the range of medical and surgical specialties. To accomplish this goal, NIA will provide two years of support for small research projects to physicians trained in medical or surgical specialties who seek to become clinician-scientists in aging-related aspects of their specialty. Eligible applicants include, but are not limited to, physicians in traditional medical or surgical specialties, anesthesiologists, emergency medicine physicians, family medicine practitioners, general internists, general surgeons, geriatricians, hospitalists, neurologists, obstetricians/gynecologists, palliative care physicians, physiatrists, and psychiatrists. As described below, research support through this initiative will be contingent on applicants’ demonstration of acceptable professional development activities and related support.

Full details regarding the program may be found at the following NIA website:
