Title of Collaborative Activity:

Translational Research to Help Older Adults Maintain their Health and Independence in the Community

Description of Collaborative Activity:

The National Institute on Aging (NIA) and the Administration on Aging (AoA) have partnered to solicit applications using the NIH R01 award mechanism for translational research that moves evidence-based research findings toward the development of new interventions, programs, policies, practices, and tools that can be used by community-based organizations to help elderly individuals remain healthy and independent, and living in their own homes and communities. The goal of this initiative is to support translational research involving collaborations between academic research centers and community-based organizations with expertise serving the elderly (such as city and state health departments, city/town leadership councils, and Area Agencies on Aging) that will enhance our understanding of practical tools, techniques, programs and policies that communities across the nation can use to more effectively respond to needs of their aging populations.
