- NIA announces the availability of Exploratory/Developmental awards (R21) to initiate the systematic scientific study of Elder Mistreatment. Several of the more basic priority areas elaborated in the National Academy of Sciences publication Elder Mistreatment. Abuse, Neglect, and Exploitation in an Aging America (2003) are included in this solicitation. This RFA will address initial scientific stages for understanding Elder Mistreatment in community and institutional settings. These research priority areas include: (1) innovative methods for estimating incidence; (2) standardization of definitions and measurement; (3) elaboration of risk factors; (4) methods of clinical and psychosocial identification of Elder Mistreatment; and (5) identification of Elder Mistreatment in institutional settings. Because of the paucity of research in this area, NIA is intent upon expanding the research infrastructure for Elder Mistreatment and therefore solicits applica!
tions from scientists with expertise in related areas (e.g., child abuse; sexual behaviors; other illicit behaviors) as well as those with expertise in Elder Mistreatment. Finally, NIA seeks the judgment of the scientific community, based upon evidence collected in these grants, on the feasibility of conducting a national incidence study of elder mistreatment.

- NIA expects to award approximately $1,700,000 annually.

- Six to eight awards are anticipated.

- This RFA uses the R21 mechanism.

- Eligible organizations include

- For-profit and non-profit organizations;
- Public and private institutions, such as universities, colleges, hospitals, and laboratories;
- Units of State government;
- Units of local government;
- Eligible agencies of the Federal government;
- Domestic institutions/organizations; and
- Faith-based or community based organizations.

- Eligible principal investigators include scientists with sufficient expertise to address the topic areas of this RFA and with adequate experience to serve as a Principal Investigator.
