To achieve this goal, the GEMSSTAR Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) provides small grants to conduct transdisciplinary aging research that will yield pilot data and experience for subsequent aging research projects.The GEMSSTAR program also encourages candidates to seek out a supportive research environment to achieve the program's goal of fostering the development of early-career physician- and dentist-scientists in aging- or geriatric-focused research, particularly as it applies to their clinical specialty/discipline. In selecting GEMSSTAR awardees, NIA will consider the extent to which a candidate's environment is supportive of aging- or geriatric-focused research.
