NIA recently posted their latest cleared concepts for aging research that were approved by the National Advisory Council on Aging (NACA) earlier this month. Researchers with an eye toward future scientific endeavors will want to review these and plan accordingly in the likely case they’ll evolve into future funding opportunity announcements (FOAs). While a scientific idea making it to the cleared concept stage doesn’t guarantee an award mechanism or funding allocation, many of NIA’s cleared concepts have indeed, historically, become FOAs published in the NIH Guide.
Concepts posted include:
- Resources to Promote Coordination and Collaboration across Deeply Phenotyped Longitudinal Behavioral and Social Studies of Aging
- Screening for Cognitive Impairment: Decision-making
- Understanding Place-Based Health Inequalities in Mid-Life
- Understanding the Role of Bilingualism in Cognitive Reserve and Resilience in Aging and AD/ADRD
- Health Equity and the Cost of Novel Treatments for Alzheimer’s Disease and Related Dementias
