National Institutes of Health (NIH): Development of Measures of Fatigability in Older Adults (R21)

This opportunity uses the R21 Exploratory/Developmental Research Grants funding mechanism.

This award invites applications to develop and evaluate measures of fatigability. The award is not intended to support the addition of one more instrument to the extensive assortment of existing fatigue measures, but to substantially advance the science of disability measurement through development of a qualitatively different construct — fatigability — by addressing the inherent problem of self-pacing that confounds most measures of fatigue.

Funding & Duration

The combined budget for direct costs for the two year project period may not exceed $275,000. (approx. AUD $352,000). No more than $200,000 (approx. AUD $256,000) may be requested in any single year.

The maximum project period is two years.


Non-domestic (non-U.S.) Entities (Foreign Institutions) are eligible to apply.
