REQUEST FOR PILOT/FEASIBILITY PROJECT AWARDS
UAB’s Nathan Shock Center of Excellence in the Basic Biology of Aging announces the availability of pilot/feasibility (P/F) project awards for investigators having the goal of future funding from the National Institutes of Health/National Institute on Aging (NIH/NIA). The P/F studies may focus on any area of aging research that can be supported by our cores, with priority given to those examining hallmarks and/or energetics of aging. Basic Alzheimer's disease studies are eligible if they contain clear basic aging and/or energetics focus. The pilot program will provide up to four 1-year awards (maximum of $25,000). Applicants MUST utilize at least one of the UAB Nathan Shock Center Research Cores, as described in the Research Cores website pages.
Submission Deadline: February 25, 2022
The awards are intended to support scientists to obtain extramural funding for aging research. We particularly encourage applications from early stage investigators (as defined by NIH) or established investigators new to aging research, and/or who are pursuing a new direction in the field. Advanced post-docs are eligible to apply with a letter of support from a mentor in the field. Applicants new to aging biology research should identify a collaborator, with a strong record in the field, who is willing to serve as a mentor.
