Division of Aging Biology
The Division of Aging Biology promotes and supports research and training on the molecular, cellular, genetic, and physiological mechanisms underlying normal aging and age-related pathologies. The objective of DAB-funded research is to elucidate the basic biochemical, genetic, and physiological mechanisms underlying the process of aging and age-related changes in humans and in animal models of human aging. This includes investigations of the gradual or programmed alterations of structure and function that characterize normal aging and investigations of how these adverse changes become risk factors for, or accompany, age-related conditions and disease states.
Featured Funding Opportunities
This Funding Opportunity Announcement utilizes the SBIR cooperative agreement (U44) activity code to support the preclinical development of emerging therapeutics targeting fundamental mechanisms of aging (e.g., inflammation, cell senescence, proteostasis). This includes the translation of a broad range of potential geroscience-based therapies…
