Launched in 2007, The Pilot Seed Grant program supports innovative, high-risk, multi-disciplinary research in aging including basic and translational research leading to innovations in health care for older adults.
The program was developed to encourage junior faculty researchers to explore new areas of research in aging that have a potential for further funding from extramural funding sources.
