Biology of Stem Cells in Aging: This Request for Applications (RFA) is to solicit applications that address the basic biology of stem cells in tissue maintenance and disease in aging. Research to elucidate the role of stem cells in tissue turnover, maintenance and repair, and how stem cells and their environment change with age, will be important to understanding why tissues, organs and organisms experience declining function with age. As well, this research will be critical to development of stem-cell based therapies for age-related diseases and conditions in the growing population of elderly patients. Applications are encouraged for projects that significantly advance research to characterize stem cells as a function of aging, characterize the tissue environment and the interaction of stem cells with that environment during aging, understand stem cell involvement in tissue and organ health with age, examine how stem cells may integrate into aged tissues for maintenance and repair, and examine the role of stem cells in degenerative disorders of aging. Applications may focus on various aging tissues or physiological systems, including cardiovascular, musculoskeletal, immune, urogenital, endocrine, and nervous systems.
