National Institutes of Health

This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA), issued by the National Institute on Aging (NIA) of the National Institutes of Health, solicits grant applications that will examine the role of aging in the interactions between the immune systems and skeletal systems in animal models. Research projects that will determine the mechanisms involved in how both aging of the bone marrow niche and immunosenescence impact these interactions, leading to pathological conditions in bone homeostasis, are the focus of this FOA.
