This FOA calls for investigator teams to design an innovative network that will serve the field at large and advance collaboration and coordination among studies. Network activities are expected to include:

  • Outreach to investigators and support for meetings that will stimulate innovation and collaboration.
  • Creation of a publicly available meta-data catalogue on a web-based platform that will identify and describe existing deeply phenotyped behavioral and social datasets characterized by rich psychological, behavioral, and biobehavioral content; identify studies with overlapping measures or compatible designs; and support cross-project co-analysis.
  • Methodological consultation services for investigators.
  • Pilot support for collaborative teams to leverage existing deeply phenotyped longitudinal studies to answer new questions of relevance to aging and the adult lifespan, including the influence of social and behavioral factors on healthspan and biological aging; address replication and generalizability issues; and provide educational opportunities for the next generation of investigators.
