AFAR Research Grants
AFAR provides up to $100,000 for a one- to two-year award to junior faculty (M.D.s and Ph.D.s) to conduct research that will serve as the basis for longer term research efforts. AFAR-supported investigators study a broad range of biomedical and clinical topics including the causes of cellular senescence, the role of estrogen in the development of osteoporosis, the genetic factors associated with Alzheimer's disease, the effects of nutrition and exercise on the aging process, and much more. Since 1981, over 680 AFAR Research Grants have been awarded.
Please note: The 2013 awards are closed and applications are no longer being accepted. The tentative deadline for applications for the 2014 awards is December 16, 2013; please check back in fall 2013 for updated application materials.- See more at: http://www.afar.org/research/funding/afar-research-grants#sthash.I0BRVH8g.dpuf
