The National Advisory Council on Aging meets three times a year to consider grant applications and programs and make recommendations. Materials for the meetings contain critical information about research priorities and future directions for the National Institute on Aging, including outlook for funding in future years, new areas of research, and new kinds of grants.
Dr. Robin Barr, director of NIA's Division of Extramural Activities, explains how to access this information in a new blog post, How to find the best parts of our Council minutes .
