An increasing number of early-stage scientists are exploring careers associated with bio-entrepreneurship, science communications, intellectual property, regulatory affairs, science policy, consulting, and more. NIA has developed new funding mechanisms to better prepare these scientists and researchers for careers outside of traditional academic research. To learn more about these new mechanisms, please join the Research Centers Collaborative Network and National Institute on Aging for this informational webinar on the NIA Research and Entrepreneurial Development Immersion (REDI) program!
The NIA REDI program comprises several awards designed to support graduate students and early-career researchers exploring career paths not often emphasized in traditional research training programs. The goals of this webinar were to:
Give an overview of the NIA REDI program, including how REDI-supported trainees will acquire specialized skills for success in a variety of areas
Provide information and insight to prospective applicants (the upcoming deadline is October 18, 2023!)
Facilitate a live Q&A with two REDI awardees:
Brianna Stubbs, PhD: Lead Translational Scientist at the Buck Institute – REDI K01
Julie Coleman, PhD: Director at Celdara Medical – REDI R25

On January 25, 2023 NIH’s Final NIH Policy for Data Management and Sharing came into effect. To support researchers who are applying for or have been awarded NIA funding, the Nathan Shock Centers Coordinating Center collaborated with NIA and NIH staff to provide this informational webinar. The goals of this webinar were to:
Provide an overview of the new data management and sharing policy and why it is important
Discuss how quality data management promotes rigor, reproducibility, and trustworthiness of science
Provide an overview of a survey that assessed data and code sharing practices in research funded by Nathan Shock Centers
Outline pros and cons of depositing data into large repositories
Share insight on how researchers can comply with the new NIH data sharing policy
Address common questions and concerns related to data management and sharing
Presentations were followed by a Q&A with the audience.
