New Project on Aging and Longevity Studies

Dear Friends and Colleagues,

Recently we have developed a new research proposal on aging and longevity studies, which was reviewed for the National Institute on Aging, NIA, with the following summary:

"There are no major weaknesses. Overall, the minor concerns are far-outweighed by the many important strengths of the application including the high level of significance and innovation, stellar team, and sound approach."

Yet the score is slightly out of their funding threshold. So are there any people here, who might be interested in this new project, and may help to connect us with potential sponsors and foundations?

Please advise.  Thank you!

- Leonid and Natalia
