GEMSSTAR Scholars

The Grants for Early Medical/Surgical Specialists' Transition to Aging Research (GEMSSTAR) program was developed in 2011 and is funded by the National Institute on Aging. The GEMSSTAR award is for early career physician-scientists trained in medical or surgical specialties and early career dentist-scientists who are embarking on careers as future leaders in aging- or geriatric-focused research. GEMSSTAR scholars attend a biennial conference, previously hosted by the AGS, currently hosted by the ClinSTAR CC and are invited to various GSI activities at the AGS Annual Meeting. Visit the GSI Programs page to learn more about the GEMSSTAR program. To access a directory of GEMSSTAR scholars, please visit the NIH Website.
