Request for Proposal announced for Forever Healthy Foundation Fellowship in Rejuvenation Biotechnology
Mountain View, CA / Berlin, Germany
SENS Research Foundation (SRF) and Forever Healthy Foundation (FH) have announced a Forever Healthy Foundation Fellowship, sending out a Request for Proposals (RFP) for interested Post-Docs in the Rejuvenation Biotechnology space. The Fellowship will be carried out at the SRF Research Center in Mountain View, California.
Applications are requested that promise progress over the course of the 3-year Fellowship in any area of Rejuvenation Biotechnology – defined as the application of the principles of regenerative medicine for the prevention and reversal of age-related disease. Degenerative aging is a consequence of the progressive accumulation of damage to tissue cellular and molecular structures over time; specific diseases of aging emerge when the cumulative burden of such damage in a particular tissue exceeds the minimum required to sustain its core biological functions.
“Rejuvenation biotechnology began as a concept that few researchers understood, so our extramural research was necessarily guided by our own assessment of other researchers’ suitability, rather than by researchers coming to us with proposals. This RFP is a demonstration that that is no longer so: rejuvenation biotech has now become an established biomedical research paradigm”, explains Dr. Aubrey de Grey, Chief Science Officer of SRF.
This Fellowship has been made possible through the generous support of the Forever Healthy Foundation, a private nonprofit initiative whose mission is to enable people to vastly extend their healthy lifespans and be part of the first generation to cure aging. In order to accelerate the development of therapies to bring aging under full medical control, the Forever Healthy Foundation directly supports cutting-edge research aimed at the molecular and cellular repair of damage caused by the aging process.
