R21/R33 CARG Infrastructure Grant

The overall goal of this NIA-funded five-year R21/R33 grant, “Cancer and Aging Research Group (CARG) Infrastructure Grant,” is: to develop a sustainable national research infrastructure to create and support significant and innovative projects addressing key interdisciplinary research questions at the aging and cancer interface.


  • Solidify the infrastructure and expertise, in the form of Cores, needed to facilitate the design of impactful aging and cancer research based on U13 priorities
  • Utilize the sustainable infrastructure to foster collaborations among a range of interdisciplinary investigators across the nation to accelerate innovative research in aging and cancer
  • Support and guide high-priority research projects at the interface of aging and cancer to lay the foundation for competitive multi-site studies
  • Identify, cultivate, and mentor investigators in aging and cancer research
  • Disseminate through effective communication strategies the research findings and data-sharing opportunities to the larger community
