The NIA Office of International Activities (OIA) serves as a liaison with international agencies, foreign organizations, and foreign scientists involved in aging research. It also coordinates aging research activities under agreements between the U.S. and other countries, promotes strategies to build global aging research capacity, and supports collaborative research projects. The OIA administers a program that brings foreign scientists to NIA's laboratories to promote collaborative research between NIA’s scientists and those in other countries, and to influence the development of biomedical and behavioral research internationally. Sponsoring and participating in international meetings and workshops are also among the office's responsibilities. For more information, contact:
