NIEH/NIA Telomere Pilot Awards: Call for Submissions

July 07, 2020

We are happy to be able to support at least five pilot grants for ESI’s at this time and would love for you to share this opportunity (attached RFA) with your relevant networks. The NIEH/NIA Telomere Measurement Network is supporting up to 5 pilot projects of secondary analyses (a $4,000 honorarium), of telomere length to assess TL as a sentinel of environmental exposures, psychosocial stress and disease susceptibility. This is targeted for postdocs or Early Stage Investigators who will benefit from the network and mentoring. These pilot projects are expected to provide investigators with pilot data to support future K or R01 applications that include telomere length with a higher level of scientific rigor and address novel questions. You can see the RFA attached or you can find it here. We are extending the deadline to July 20th. Please submit a single PDF to the [email protected]. PLEASE SHARE THIS widely!
