Because the overall goal of RFA-AG-16-009 “Collaborative Networks to Advance Delirium Research (R24)” is to foster collaborative effort between delirium researchers to form an infrastructure greater than the sum of its parts, NIA program staff will hold a pre-application webinar/teleconference as described below.
Goals of Webinar/Teleconference
The purpose of this teleconference is to provide technical assistance to prospective applicants, including an overview of the research program and a discussion of the R24 (Infrastructure/Resource-Related Research Project) grant mechanism used. The teleconference will also provide information on preparing an application, highlight the peer review process, and address participant questions.
Joining and participating in the webinar and teleconference are optional. Participants may remain anonymous on the teleconference and webinar if they choose.
