Abstract: Founded in 1981, the nonprofit American Federation for Aging Research (AFAR) supports research into the basic mechanisms of aging and age-related diseases. It is working to bring new scientists into the discipline. This year, AFAR is giving away just more than $7 million to 130 scientists at varying career stages, from grad students to junior faculty. The winning grant proposals range from investigations of oxidative damage in long-lived bats to the role of a suspect protein, {beta}-secretase, in Alzheimer's disease.
