Applications Invited for American Federation for Aging Research Grants

Deadline: December 15, 2005

The American Federation for Aging Research Grant Program (http://www.afar.org/) is designed to assist in the development of the careers of junior investigators committed to pursuing careers in the field of aging research.

A typical successful applicant will be serving in his or her first or second year of a junior faculty appointment. The AFAR Research Grant Program does not provide support for postdoctoral fellows in the laboratory of a senior investigator, or investigators who have already received major independent funding for research on aging. Senior faculty, i.e. at the rank of associate professor level or higher, are also not eligible forconsideration.

AFAR funds research projects concerned with understanding the basic mechanisms of aging. Projects investigating age-related diseases are also supported, especially if approached from the point of view of how basic aging processes may lead to these outcomes. Projects concerning mechanisms underlying common geriatric functional disorders are also encouraged, as long as these include connections to fundamental problems in the biology of aging. Projects that deal strictly with clinical problems such as the diagnosis and treatment of disease, health outcomes, or the social contextof aging are not eligible.

It is anticipated that approximately fifteen grants of up to $60,000 each will be awarded in 2006. Candidates may propose to use the award over thecourse of one or two years, as justified by the proposed research.

The proposed research must be conducted at any type of not-for-profit setting in the United States. All candidates must submit applicationsendorsed by their institution.

Visit the AFAR Web site for details on this and other funding opportunities.
