Glenn/AFAR Postdoctoral Fellowship Program for Translational Research on Aging

Modified: December 7, 2015

The Glenn Foundation for Medical Research, in partnership with the American Federation for Aging Research (AFAR), created the Glenn/AFAR Postdoctoral Fellowship Program for Translational Research on Aging to encourage and further the careers of postdoctoral fellows, who are uniquely capable of translating advances in basic research from the laboratory to the clinic. The award is intended to provide significant research and training support to permit these postdoctoral fellows to become established in the field of aging.  Letters of Intent are due by March 3rd.

Eligibility: The applicant must be a postdoctoral fellow (MD and/or PhD degree or equivalent) at the start date of the award (October 1, 2016). Fellows may not hold any concurrent foundation, not-for-profit, or government funding. Applicants who have received postdoctoral training beyond 5 years (before October 1, 2011) must provide a justification for the additional training period.

Award: It is anticipated that up to 10 one-year grants of between $49,000 and $60,000 will be awarded in 2016.

Next Steps: If you are interested in applying for any of these funding opportunities, please contact:
Susan Fisher Miller, Senior Associate Director, Foundation Relations (847-491-7547).
