(BUSINESS WIRE)--Hevolution Foundation, a global non-profit organization that provides grants and early-stage investments to incentivize research and entrepreneurship in healthspan science, announces the recipients of its grants program, Hevolution Foundation Advancing Geroscience Efforts (HF-AGE). First announced in October 2022, the program funds research that was deemed meritorious and praiseworthy by the National Institute on Aging (NIA), one of the institutes of the US National Institutes of Health (NIH).
“HF-AGE was inspired by my time with the NIA, where I saw so many superb grant proposals that were taken through the review process but ultimately not funded, oftentimes simply for lack of resources,” commented Felipe Sierra, PhD, Chief Scientific Officer of Hevolution Foundation. “I could not be more gratified to see the program come to life via these nine projects that so clearly align with our mission and goals.”
