Grant Application

Aging Biology Foundation EU and the US, together with co-investors, provide financing mainly for the projects to better understand healthy human aging’s fundamental mechanisms.

In particular, we are very interested in joint projects with researchers who have access to genetic, epigenetic, biochemical, clinical data, blood and tissue samples for

  • analyzing collected human data and samples by parallel multi-omics approaches including sequencing, profiling for chromatin structure, transcriptomics, proteomics etc.
  • cross-sectional (different ages) and longitudinal research focused on the collection and analysis of data for healthy individuals
  • creating statistical models predicting risks of age-associated diseases for healthy people based on the results of data processing

Who can apply:

  • experts in the field of human aging research
  • researchers who are interested in complementing their professional interests with research in the field of healthy aging

A necessary condition is access to the infrastructure required for the successful implementation of the project. For bioinformaticians involved in the projects analyzing already collected data this condition is optional.

The grant amount is a subject of the proposed scope of work and can vary from $50.000 up to $8.000.000

The grant period: from 6 months up to 5 years.
