Section I. Funding Opportunity Description

Purpose

Current Language  
Each application should include at least: 1) a core to support administrative functions, including an advisory committee (not to be named in the application). This core will manage outreach activities including courses, lectures and symposia - if such activities are proposed - as well as the joint conferences to be held tentatively on years 2 and 4 of the award. This core should also be in charge of advertising the activities of the NSC, through development of a functional web site, and participation in a common Data Coordination Center (see below); 2) a research development core in charge of supporting pilot/feasibility projects, and providing temporary support for investigators just entering the field of biology of aging research, to a point where they can compete for independent support, and 3) at least two research core activities uniquely focused on issues of interest to the biology of aging.
