This FOA invites applications from qualified institutions to create a Roybal Center Coordinating Center (CC), serving the needs of the Roybal Centers for Translational Research on Aging program as well as the Roybal Centers for Translational Research on Dementia Care Provider Support program.
Roybal Coordinating Center will serve as a hub for the Roybal Center grant program.
Roybal Center programs conduct translational in the behavioral and social sciences of aging, structured in accordance with the NIH Stage Model.
Roybal Center program resources are intended for pilot and preliminary translational, multi-directional research at Stages 0 through IV of the behavioral intervention development pipeline with the goal of creating principle-driven interventions that improve the lives of mid-life and older people and the capacity of institutions to adapt to societal aging.
The Roybal Coordinating Center will facilitate and coordinate trans-Roybal activities.
The Center will work closely with the NIA Program Officer and, in coordination with all Roybal sites, will be responsive to requests generated by key Roybal site personnel, NIA, NIH, the scientific community, and the general public.
