Large grants to USA full-time assistant and full professors at nonprofit institutions for research projects related to aging. Funding is intended to support high-risk research studies that have significant potential for yielding transformative and translational discoveries in the biology of aging, with relevance to health-span and human aging.
Projects which build on early discoveries that show translational potential for clinically-relevant strategies, treatments and therapeutics, addressing human aging and healthspan are also considered.
Projects that focus on specific diseases or on assessment of health care strategies will receive lower priority, unless the research plan makes clear and direct connections to fundamental issues in the biology of aging and/or on the translational aspects of basic discovery to human aging and health-span.
Applications are reviewed based on the following criteria:
