How can the NIA Office of Special Populations (OSP) help me?


The NIA OSP seeks to assist emerging scholars in the development of careers that are devoted to genetic, clinical, behavioral, social and economic research on aging. The NIA OSP also looks to disseminate information about health disparities and promote research on these disparities within NIA and in the context of NIH-wide efforts. This mission is accomplished through technical assistance webinars, professional consultation, attendance at national meetings/conferences and the NIA Butler-Williams Scholars Program.
