Dr. William Kearns Reviews for the NIA GEMSSTARS Program
Dr. William Kearns was invited by the National Institute on Aging to be a reviewer of the Grants for Early Medical/Surgical Specialists' Transition to Aging Research (GEMSSTAR) program. The overall goal of the GEMSSTAR Program is to provide support for early stage clinician-scientists to establish a track record in aging research. The GEMSSTAR award is targeted to early faculty members who have recently completed their clinical training in any medical or surgical specialty and are embarking on a career in clinical aging research in their specialty area. The award is intended to offer support in a particularly vulnerable time in a new clinical faculty member’s career.
