Resources for Researchers

The intent of this page is to provide resources useful to physician-investigators for research, networking, and career development. Additional content will be added to this page over time as additional resources are identified.

The National Institute of Aging (NIA) has recently provided funding for the American Federation for Aging Research (AFAR) to develop a virtual research community, the Clinician Scientist Transdisciplinary Aging Research (Clin-STAR) Coordinating Center. The Clin-STAR Coordinating Center was established in an effort to connect medical and surgical specialty clinician-investigators in aging/geriatric research on a broader, national level, to accelerate transdisciplinary research, and to offer opportunities to network, collaborate, mentor, and promote career development. The Clin-STAR Coordinating Center will organize activities and provide resources for the cultivation, connection, and synergy of clinician-scientists in aging research from disparate specialties across the US.

Physician-investigators in anesthesiology conducting aging/geriatric research are encouraged to engage with the Clin-STAR Coordinating Center and leverage this powerful resource.
