NIH Director's Transformative Research Awards (R01)

The NIH Director's Transformative Research Award complements NIH’s traditional, investigator-initiated grant programs by supporting individual scientists or groups of scientists proposing groundbreaking, exceptionally innovative, original and/or unconventional research with the potential to create new scientific paradigms, establish entirely new and improved clinical approaches, or develop transformative technologies. Little or no preliminary data are expected. Projects must clearly demonstrate the potential to produce a major impact in a broad area of biomedical or behavioral research.

Doctoral Dissertation Grant: An Ethnography of Chronic Disease Risk and Pre-Diabetes

This project examines how risk is made into an object of biomedical intervention. It will explore how biomedical risk practices and discourses are transforming contemporary social life. To illuminate these processes, the investigators will study the phenomenon of pre-diabetes in an urban environment. Pre-diabetes is a new and rapidly expanding diagnostic category. The use of the term speaks to new methods of surveillance and management of glucose in the bloodstream. It is creating a wide and growing at risk population that is situated between ill and healthy.

Faculty Research Fellowships

A University-wide center, the Robert N. Butler Columbia Aging Center seeks to bring together researchers from across the entire to enable the interdisciplinary study of the biopsychosocial nature of the aging process and its modifiability.

Sponsored by the Center under the direction of Ursula M. Staudinger, Ph.D., these faculty fellowships are open to all junior and senior Columbia University faculty members interested in innovative disciplinary and interdisciplinary research on aging and the lifecourse.
