NOTE: All applications are due by 5:00 PM local time of applicant organization. 

The purpose of this funding opportunity announcement (FOA) is to solicit applications that further examine and characterize molecular underpinnings surrounding telomere status and accompanying biological pathways in response to environmental insults. Specifically, the intent is to further stimulate the field on how general telomere maintenance modulates downstream biological pathway(s) leading to cellular and organismal dysfunction. It is anticipated that proposed studies examining exposure affects at telomeric regions can actually potentiate early onset of age-related diseases. This FOA ultimately seeks to identify key mechanistic insights into telomere dynamics and how this could better dissect the interplay between environmental exposures at this vulnerable site contribute to disease (e.g., cancer, CVD, and other age-related outcomes, such as neurodegeneration).
