Grants and Funding Opportunities

The GEAR Network aims to build a research infrastructure for interdisciplinary aging studies focused on geriatric care in the ED as well as advance the science supporting emergency medical care for people with cognitive impairment or dementia. To that end, GEAR offers funding opportunities to foster and support interdisciplinary research in key priority areas that have been acknowledged as research gaps. See below to learn more about the identified research priorities and funding opportunities.
