Drs. Mark Roth and Marc Van Gilst of the Basic Sciences Division have received Glenn Awards for Research in Biological Mechanisms of Aging.
Roth, a cell biologist focused on suspended animation, and Van Gilst, a molecular physiologist who studies metabolism, will augment their research with the $60,000 grants.
The Glenn Foundation for Medical Research initiated the award program in 2007 to provide unsolicited funds to researchers investigating the biology of aging. The grants assist scientists where funding shortages threaten to impede scientific progress. An anonymous scientific advisory committee provides nominees for the selection process.
Basic’s Dr. Dan Gottschling was a previous winner in 2009.
