R37: Method To Extend Research in Time (MERIT) Awards

MERIT Awards (R37) provide long-term support to outstanding, experienced investigators. MERIT awards are initiated by NIA and by the National Advisory Council on Aging.

For more information:

Because NIA and the National Advisory Council on Aging initiate and approve MERIT awards, these cannot be applied for directly. Investigators interested in the program may contact DEAQuery@EXMUR.NIA.NIH.GOV for recent MERIT awardees.
