Catalyst Grants

MIRA/Labarge Catalyst grants offer the opportunity to conduct collaborative and interdisciplinary research focused on mobility in aging, where mobility may include physiological, social, and financial mobility, as well as mobility within community or health systems. These grants are intended to stimulate new collaborations and allow researchers to collect preliminary data, conduct feasibility or pilot studies, or scaling of interventions.
