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:
In addition, you may contact Marianna Drootin of the
American Geriatrics Society (Email: firstname.lastname@example.org).
