Grants to USA individuals to conduct research projects in nonprofit institutions. Eligible projects should be in the field of aging and health. Funding is intended to support research that will significantly contribute to understanding the biology of aging and how aging affects health and wellbeing.
Aging is the single greatest risk factor for many chronic diseases. Therefore, the connection between aging research and disease or disability prevention is becoming increasingly important as the global population ages. Substantial progress has been made in defining fundamental biological mechanisms underlying aging processes. Early discoveries are now showing potential for prevention of diseases and disorders of aging.
Future progress depends on gaining a deeper understanding of how aging processes affect health span and how to translate that knowledge as quickly as possible to benefit human health and promote the overall well-being of the aging population.
Sponsored by the Glenn Foundation for Medical Research, in collaboration with the American Federation for Aging Research (AFAR), the "Breakthroughs in Gerontology (BIG)" initiative provides timely support research projects which if successful offer significant promise of yielding transforming discoveries in the fundamental biology of aging. Projects which build on early discoveries that show translational potential for clinically relevant strategies, treatments and therapeutics, addressing human aging and health span are also considered.
For most biology of aging grant programs, AFAR looks for research projects that focus on understanding the basic mechanisms of aging. Projects investigating age-related diseases may be of interest as well, as long as they are approached from the point of view of illuminating how basic aging processes are involved in disease outcomes.
