Description: This FOA solicits applications on novel studies of cell non-autonomous mechanisms of aging. The goal of this FOA is to support applications that will lead to in-depth understanding of the mechanisms that produce cell non-autonomous aging signals: what they are, how they are generated from cell autonomous aging, how they are released from cells, how they are transported or communicated to other cells, and how they elicit aging upon reaching their target cells. Research supported by this FOA should lead to new insights and better understanding of the importance of cell non-autonomous mechanisms in aging at a tissue, system, or organismal level.
