Last update


The Donald W. Reynolds Foundation is soliciting proposals for its Comprehensive Programs to Strengthen the Training in Geriatrics of Medical Students, Residents and/or Practicing Physicians. Of particular interest are initiatives that are highly innovative and promise long-lasting, value-added impact. Proposed activities should be sufficiently comprehensive to have a meaningful impact on a substantial number of medical students, residents and/or practicing physicians. They should be aimed at developing knowledge of fundamental biomedical aspects of aging, geriatric assessment and care coordination and at training physicians to optimally manage the clinical conditions and special problems of the frail elderly. Most importantly, these activities must lead to changes in training that will be maintained beyond Reynolds Foundation support. 

Because MU is limited to one application for this program, letters of intent must be submitted to the Office of Research, 202 Jesse Hall, no later than 5:00 pm on Friday, August 19, 2005. Letters of intent should be limited to three pages and should briefly outline the following: 1) proposed activities, 2) innovativeness of the proposed activities, 3) the potential impact and “value added” of the proposed activities, 4) plans to evaluate the project, and 5) anticipated source(s) of cost match funds.

Amount: Up to $500,000 per year for 4 years.  A 1:2 cost match is required.
MU Deadline: 5:00 pm on Friday, August 19, 2005
Agency Deadline:

Letter of Intent - September 1, 2005
Full proposal - January 9, 2005
