General | Latest Info

The Glenn Foundation for Medical Research and AFAR provide up to 100 000 for one-to two-year award to Junior Faculty to conduct research that will serve as the basis for longer term research efforts on the biology of Aging. These Investigators study a broad range of biomedical and clinical topics related to aging. The Letter of Intent deadline for the 2021 Program is December 15 2020. The major goal of this Program is to assist in the development of careers of Junior Investigators committed to pursuing careers in the field of Aging Research. GFMR and AFAR support research projects concerned with understanding basic mechanisms of aging rather than disease-specific research. Projects investigating age-related diseases are supported if they approach 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 encourage, as long as these include connections to fundamental problems in the biology of aging. Projects that deal strictly with clinical problems such as diagnosis and treatment of disease, health outcomes, or the social context of aging are not eligible. Examples of potentially fundable areas of research include, but are not limited to: Aging and immune function Stem cell Aging Inflammation Genetic control of longevity Neurobiology and neuropathology of Aging Invertebrate or vertebrate animal models Cardiovascular Aging Aging and cellular stress response Metabolic and endocrine changes projects investigating mechanisms of, or putative therapies for, Alzheimers Disease and related dementias, are not eligible for this award and Investigators should consider applying instead to Small Research Grant Program for Next Generation of Researchers in Alzheimer's Disease. It is anticipated that approximately 10 grants of up to 100 000 each will be awarded in 2021. Applicants may propose to use the award over the course of one or two years as justified by proposed research. Up to 8 % of funds may be budgeted for overhead or indirect costs. Funding will begin on July 1st 2021. The Applicant must be an independent investigator with independent research space as described in form complete by Dean or Department Chair, and must be no more than 10 years beyond the start of postdoctoral Research training as of July 1 2021. Exceptions to the ten year rule may be requested by emailing an NIH-style biosketch to AFAR at Grants AFAR. Org at least one week prior to the deadline date. Due to challenges relating to the COVID pandemic, we will allow one additional year-11 years total-for 2021 award cycle.
