Aging-Related Projects: May 3

The University of Pennsylvania Institute on Aging (IOA) will fund three multidisciplinary pilot projects on biomedical, epidemiological, behavioral or health services research in basic science or clinical areas in aging. Each pilot will be funded at a level of up to $50,000/year (for personnel and supply costs, but not equipment). These one-year, non-renewable grants support multidisciplinary pilot projects in aging-related research. The purpose is to assist faculty in obtaining preliminary data to serve as the basis of a grant application to the NIH or other public or private agencies concerned with aging. Application instructions may be found on the IOA website: www.uphs.upenn.edu/aging/.

A committee representing the IOA Internal Advisory Board will review all proposals.  Funding depends not only on scientific merit, but also on the likelihood that the pilots will lead to independent investigator initiated proposals.  Principal Investigators must be on the faculty of Penn's School of Medicine, but collaboration with faculty from other departments is strongly encouraged. 

Priority will be given to:

  • Faculty in the early stages of their career who seek to enter the aging research arena
  • Senior faculty who intend to shift their research emphasis towards aging 

Applications should utilize the basic NIH PHS 398 form with a limit of 5 pages (exclusive of face page, budget, biosketches, letters of collaboration and literature cited). The application submission deadline is May 3, 2004 and questions may be directed to Kathryn Jedrziewski, Deputy Director, Institute on Aging (IOA), telephone (215) 898-2445 or e-mail: jedrzmk@mail.med.upenn.edu
