Resource Centers for Minority Aging (RCMAR) Coordinating Center (R24): This FOA invites applications from qualified institutions to create or continue Resource Centers for Minority Aging Research (RCMAR) Coordinating Center (CC). The RCMAR Program aims to enhance the diversity of the aging research workforce by mentoring promising scientists from under-represented groups for sustained careers in aging research. RCMARs focus on priority areas of social, behavioral, and economic research on the processes of aging at the individual or societal level. The program supports research at multiple levels from genetics to cross-national comparative research, and at stages from basic through translational, with the goal to improve the health, well-being, function, and independence of older Americans. The new cycle of RCMARs will expand the scientific scope of the program to encourage transdisciplinary social and behavioral science research on any theme addressed in the National Institute on Aging Strategic Plan, and will include a new cohort of RCMARs focused on behavioral and social science related to Alzheimer's disease and related dementias (ADRD). Consistent with the longstanding focus of the RCMAR program on minority aging research, all centers are also expected to offer mentoring in health disparities and minority aging issues as a major component of their investigator development programs, thereby enhancing the potential impact of research supported by the program on all sectors of our aging society. The RCMAR CC will facilitate and coordinate trans-RCMAR activities. The CC will work closely with the NIA Program Officer and, in coordination with all RCMAR sites, be responsive to requests generated by key RCMAR site personnel, NIA, NIH, the scientific community, and the general public.
