Addressing global challenges for aging and dementia
In an InsideNIA blog post, Drs. Damali Martin and John Phillips of the NIA Division of Neuroscience announced that NIA is joining the Global Environmental and Occupational Health (GEOHealth) program. GEOHealth works to build institutions and networks in developing countries for coordinated and collaborative environmental and occupational health research, data management, and training at the local, regional, and global levels. Each NIA GEOHealth hub will be supported by two coordinated, linked awards: 1) a cooperative research award to an institution in a developing nation, and 2) a training award to a U.S. institution with substantial NIH involvement to coordinate research training. All GEOHealth projects must feature mentored research training and career development programs for scientists in low- and middle-income countries in a variety of disciplines.
