NIA to Fund Molecular Studies of Circadian Clocks' Roles in Aging | GenomeWeb

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – The National Institute on Aging plans to spend $1.5 million next year to fund new research aimed at understanding the molecular mechanisms that control circadian clocks in aging tissues.

NIA said this week that it will provide up to $200,000 per year for projects lasting up to five years for research that use 'omics technologies, systems biology, imaging, and single cell studies to find out how molecular and cellular mechanisms influence circadian clocks.
