The Longer Life Foundation supports studies that assist in predicting mortality and morbidity of selected populations, and methods to promote improvements in longevity and health.
These grants are specifically designed to encourage research by junior investigators or to support senior investigators who are beginning a new line of research. These awards provide up to $50,000 direct costs per year for up to 2 years to support these missions. Further, hands-on mentorship to assist scientific development is provided to junior faculty who are beginning their research careers. These grants have proven highly effective at generating pilot data for junior investigators and in allowing them to successfully compete for funding from national agencies.

Applications are encouraged from all divisions and the grants funded are often quite diverse in nature.

Letters of Intent are due on February 22, 2019. Please submit via email to rhauck@wustl.edu.
