Non-healing Ulcerative Wounds in Aging (R01, R21)

Funding Agency:
National Institutes of Health

This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) invites applications that propose basic, clinical, or translational research on non-healing ulcerative wounds and their consequences in aging and in older persons. Applications are encouraged which focus on the 1) biology, etiology and pathophysiology of non-healing ulcerative wounds in animal models and/or older adults; 2) translation of basic/clinical research into clinical practice and health decision-making; 3) diagnosis, prevention, management and clinical outcomes of non-healing wounds in older adults. Research supported by this initiative should enhance knowledge of non-healing wounds and their consequences in older adults and provide evidence-based guidance in the diagnosis, evaluation, and/or treatment of non-healing wounds in older persons.

Although this funding opportunity uses the R01 grant mechanism, it runs in parallel with a program announcement of identical scientific scope, PA-16-231, which uses the exploratory/developmental (R21) grant mechanism.
