GLENN AWARDS

Glenn Award for Research awardThe Glenn Award was initiated in 2007, to provide unsolicited funds to researchers investigating the biology of aging. The grants are to assist scientists where funding shortages threaten to impede scientific progress. Award recipients are selected from nominees provided by an anonymous scientific advisory committee. Applications are not accepted. This program was suspended in 2019, but is intended to resume at a future date.
