Inside NIA: About This Blog

Welcome to Inside NIA: A Blog for Researchers. This blog is intended for grantees of the National Institute on Aging (NIA) at the NIH, as well as applicants for funding, those with an application in mind, application reviewers, and students pursuing careers in research on aging and Alzheimer’s disease. The wider scientific and aging advocacy communities are most welcome to participate as well. The blog will provide the latest information—weekly—on NIA funding opportunities, research priorities and news, training, and policy. We will include grantsmanship tips, and information about meetings and other resources. We hope you will find this information useful.

Please join the conversation by submitting a comment that engages our community in constructive conversation. You can also suggest a topic for the blog. We want this to be a portal for open and transparent communication, and we seek your feedback. Please review our comment policy, so you know when and how comments are published. Comments are reviewed before publication.
