GSA Webinar Series on NACA Priority Research Concepts: Measures and Methods for Research on Family Caregivers for People Living With Alzheimer’s Disease and Related Dementias

Wednesday, September 28, 2022
1 to 2 p.m. ET
See registration instructions above
Free for everyone

The National Advisory Council on Aging (NACA) meets three times a year to consider applications for research and training and to recommend funding for promising applications. Although NACA-approved concepts are not guaranteed conversion to a Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA), the majority have historically emerged later (sometimes up to 10 months subsequently) as published FOAs.

The Gerontological Society of America (GSA) and the National Institute on Aging (NIA) Division of Behavioral and Social Research (DBSR) are collaborating on this GSA webinar focused on recent NACA priority research concepts addressing Measures and Methods for Research on Family Caregivers for People Living With Alzheimer’s Disease and Related Dementias. This webinar is designed to give interested researchers—especially new investigators—maximal lead time to contemplate, pull teams together, align research ideas, plan projects, and build successful applications. NIA DBSR program officials will give brief presentations, which will be followed by opportunities for Q&A.

Presented by:

  • Elizabeth Necka, PhD, NIA Division of Behavioral and Social Research
  • Elena Fazio, PhD, NIA Division of Behavioral and Social Research
  • Amelia Karraker, PhD, NIA Division of Behavioral and Social Research
  • Steven M. Albert, PhD, FGSA, University of Pittsburgh and GSA editor-in-chief of the journal Innovation in Aging (Moderator)

Developed by GSA Workgroup:

  • James S. Powers, MD, FGSA, Vanderbilt University Medical Center (Workgroup Lead)
  • Daniel Gan, PhD, Simon Fraser University
  • Minghui (Sam) Li, PhD, University of Tennessee Health Science Center
  • Meredith Troutman-Jordan, PhD, FGSA, University of North Carolina at Charlotte
  • Panayiotis Tsitouras, MD, FGSA, University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center
