Funding Opportunities to Use AgingResearchBiobank Resources

Posted by Mike Guill on February 23 2023

NIH has posted two Notices of Special Interest (NOSI) for investigators using AgingResearchBiobank resources.

NOT-AG-21-020 seeks to encourage the use of existing cohorts and datasets for well-focused secondary analyses to investigate novel scientific ideas and/or address clinically related issues on: (1) aging changes influencing health across the lifespan (e.g., Alzheimer’s disease and Alzheimer's disease-related dementias (AD/ADRD)), (2) diseases and disabilities in older persons, and/or (3) the changes in basic biology of aging that underlie these impacts on health (the hallmarks of aging).

NOT-AG-21-028 seeks to encourage analyses of the CALERIE collection.

Further details on each opportunity, including how to apply, can be found at the links above.
