Glenn Foundation for Medical Research commits $5 million to study aging
Date:7/10/2008

er life brings with it vulnerability to diseases such as Alzheimer's, Parkinson's, osteoporosis, diabetes and others. Funding of aging research is an important path to the alleviation of suffering and reduced healthcare costs. This research forms the backbone of scientific advances in our understanding of aging. AFAR is a key organization in assuring that the best research remains supported."

Nearly 2,500 researchers have been recipients of AFAR-supported grant awards, many of whom have gone on to distinguish themselves as leaders in the field of aging research, chairing departments and running laboratories at major academic institutions. Many of the nation's leaders in biogerontology have been beneficiaries of AFAR grant programs.
