    Introducing NIA’s “Grants for Early Medical/Surgical Specialists' Transition to Aging Research” (GEMSSTAR)

    Date: June 22, 2017

    The National Institute on Aging announces the release of the 2018 “Grants for Early Medical/Surgical Specialists’ Transition to Aging Research” (GEMSSTAR) Competition. The overall goal of the GEMSSTAR program is to provide support for early career physician-scientists trained in medical or surgical specialties and early career dentist-scientists to launch careers as future leaders in aging- or geriatric-focused research. ASBMR research awards such as the Rising Star Award or the Fund for Research and Education’s “Research Grant” can be used to support Professional Development Plans to have a supportive research environment to launch a research career in an aging- or geriatrics-focused area of specialty/discipline. The GEMSSTAR award is targeted to early faculty members who have recently completed their medical, surgical, or dental training in any specialty or discipline and are embarking on a career in clinical aging research in their specialty area. The award is intended to offer support in a particularly vulnerable time in a new clinical faculty member's career. Read more or apply now.
