Biology of Aging Research Pilot Grant Program (BAR-PG)
Raising the BAR in Aging Research
Biology of Aging Research Pilot Grant Advisory Board and Recipients
The purpose of the Arizona Center on Aging’s Biology of Aging Research (BAR) Program is to:
- Encourage new and seasoned investigators to apply their expertise to research questions in Aging;
- Promote collaborative, multidisciplinary research by attracting UofA investigators from different colleges and departments and their external collaborators from academia, non-profit entities and industry;
- Enable researchers to collect sufficient preliminary data in order to pursue additional major support through other funding mechanisms – federal or private;
- Allow exploration of innovative and creative directions;
- Enhance the reputation of UofA in aging research.
Optimal leveraging of the BAR funds will jump-start new and exciting research programs to address the basic biology of the aging processes and its impact upon the clinical care and well-being of older Americans.
