Nathan Shock Centers (NSC) of Excellence in the Biology of Aging -- 2020 Pilot for NSC Core use

The Einstein Nathan Shock Center (E-NSC) is soliciting applications to support projects on the Biology of Aging that will generate preliminary data for R01-type applications that are founded on geroscience.

The awarded funds are to support only the use of designated services listed in the cores below, and the money will be directed to those cores (no funding for personnel, supplies or other expenses will be provided to the applicants). Please review the Center webpage for specific services offered under each core. http://www.einstein.yu.edu/centers/aging/centers-of-excellence/nathan-shock/

• The awards are for 1 year and will pay directly to the cores for specific services, not to exceed $15,000 per award.

• Applications from institutions outside of Einstein are strongly encouraged.

• Priority will be given to early stage investigators and senior investigators who are new to the field of Aging

Proteostasis of Aging Core (AM Cuervo). Provides investigators with tools, assays, and expertise for the analysis of changes in autophagic pathways that occur with age and in agerelated diseases.

Healthspan & Chronobiosis of Aging Core (D Huffman). Provide sophisticated integrative studies for determination of ‘healthy aging’ physiology. Also provides resources for chronobiosis studies.

Human Multi-omics of Aging Core (J Vijg). Services for designing and analyzing genomic experiments, for example single cell studies, and mining of omics data in human cohorts with longevity to address important problems in biology of aging research.

Phase 1 applications are due: November 2, 2020. Meritorious applications will be notified by November 16 and will be eligible to submit a full proposal for consideration for funding in Phase 2.
