Funding Opportunities to Use AgingResearchBiobank Resources

Associated Study: Comprehensive Assessment of the Long-term Effects of Reducing Intake of Energy Study

Posted by Mike Guill on April 29 2022

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.

CALERIE

Associated Study: Comprehensive Assessment of the Long-term Effects of Reducing Intake of Energy Study

Posted by Mike Guill on April 19 2022

A new study, Comprehensive Assessment of the Long-term Effects of Reducing Intake of Energy Study (CALERIE), has been posted to the AgingResearchBiobank website. Data and biospecimens from this study are now available for request.

CALERIE was a study designed to determine the biological effects of two years of prolonged caloric restriction in humans.
