For the past few years, the NIA has been trying to increase the number of R21 grant applications and awards. The R21 is an NIH-wide grant program “intended to encourage exploratory and developmental research projects by providing support for the early and conceptual stages…” Robin Barr, Director of the NIA Division of Extramural Activities, explains why we are so eager to support these awards in a new blog post: Why support R21 awards?
