Foundation Overview: American Federation for Aging Research



Country:
United States

Discipline:
Aging

Aim:
For 28 years, the American Federation for Aging Research (AFAR) has supported the science of healthier aging. AFAR has played a major role in providing and advancing knowledge of aging and mechanisms of age-related disease by providing grants to more than 2,600 talented scientists. Because of limited dollars in support of aging research, America loses many great minds from the study of aging to disease-focused research and many are leaving research altogether. AFAR provides one of our country's most successful responses to this brain drain.
