Paul B. Beeson Career Development Awards in Aging: The National Institute on Aging (NIA), and the John A. Hartford Foundation, Atlantic Philanthropies, and the Starr Foundation (the participating foundations) are collaborating on this initiative to sustain and promote the research careers of clinically trained individuals who are pursuing research careers in aging. The program is named after Dr. Paul B. Beeson who has profoundly influenced the career paths of many young physicians, including several who now form the core leadership in geriatric medicine. Dr. Beeson was Chairman of Medicine at Emory and Yale Medical Schools, Nuffield Professor at Oxford University and Professor and distinguished VA Physician at the University of Washington. He chaired the first Institute of Medicine study on "Aging and Medical Education" in 1978. His leadership as an editor of the Cecil Textbook of Medicine greatly influenced medical education. From his research and patient care base, he grew increasingly interested in the process of aging, and this interest led to a commitment that included his editorship of the Journal of the American Geriatrics Society. The aims of the Paul B. Beeson Career Development Awards in Aging (BCDA) program are: To encourage and assist the development of future leaders in the field of aging by supporting clinically-trained (primarily physician) faculty members early in their careers to gain additional research training and to establish independent programs in aging research. To deepen the commitment of research institutions to academic research in aging and to translating research outcomes to geriatric medicine by involving mentor and recipient in establishing and advancing the recipients career in aging research. To expand clinically-relevant research on aging broadly defined to include work in the basic sciences, including animal models of aging where there is apparent clinical relevance; maintenance of health and independence in old age; diseases and disabilities of old age; and issues in the clinical management, and systems of care for the elderly. Overall the program will foster the independent research careers of clinically trained investigators whose research will enhance the health and quality of life of Americans, particularly older people.
