The National Institute on Aging (NIA) is announcing the 1998 "Taking the Next Step: Technical Assistance Workshop" for post doctoral and pre-doctoral students, and other individuals with recent Ph.D.s, M.D.s or related doctoral degrees who are members of groups under-represented in aging research. Workshop faculty will provide information and technical assistance on applying for funding from NIA. Depending on career stage, participants will make brief research presentations in workshops and receive feedback from peers and NIA staff. The workshop will occur on November 19th and 20th in Philadelphia, PA. immediately prior to the Gerontological Society of America's 51st Annual Scientific Meeting. Participation is by competitive application. The applicant may be new to the NIH application process or poised to begin an independent program of research. Investigators who demonstrate a commitment to research careers related to minority aging issues are also encouraged to apply. Space is limited. First-time applicants will be given priority. With support from the NIH Office of Research on Minority Health, NIA can provide transportation and lodging expenses and a modest fee for preparation and participation for first-time participants. Applications must be postmarked by September 1, 1998. Do not miss this opportunity! The deadline is extended. To request an application or additional information, contact Mrs. Nenomie Palmer.
