NINDS encourages grant applications for research on critical illness and injury in aging. This announcement is made together with 3 other NIH components.
The past several decades have seen important advances in the evaluation and management of critical illnesses and injuries. Despite this progress, the interface between aging and critical care remains a significant and understudied area. This initiative supports studies on the mechanisms and management of critical illness and injury, including trauma and neurotrauma, in aging. Studies may be mechanistic, observational, or interventional in nature. Secondary analyses of existing datasets—such as from large observational studies or clinical trials—and animal studies may be proposed.
