Notice of Special Interest (NOSI): Small Business Digital Technologies for Early Detection, Characterization and Monitoring of Senescence-Related Changes

This Notice of Special Interest (NOSI) is intended to promote small business advances on the use of digital technologies for early detection, characterization, and monitoring of senescence-related changes and diseases outside of clinical settings. Developments are encouraged at all scales, from cells to tissues to whole-body. The intent is to support the development, validation, and commercialization of such technologies to be realized, targeting aging-specific processes and related conditions.

This NOSI encourages novel types of research and development on aging and longevity to support biomedical research areas within the NIA mission through better understanding of the process of aging and its impact on the prevention, progression, and prognosis of disease and disability. Promising areas of research can be ascertained by participating NIA divisions: the Division of Aging Biology, the Division of Behavioral and Social Research, the Division of Geriatrics and Clinical Gerontology and the Division of Neuroscience. The resulting analytical and related predictive technical solutions, at all scales from cells to tissues to whole-body, could help to better understand and monitor various aging-related conditions, thereby improving health care outcomes.

This notice applies to due dates on or after April 5, 2023 and subsequent receipt dates through January 6, 2026.
