Picower Institute director awarded grant for research in biological mechanisms of aging


Li-Huei Tsai, director of MIT's Picower Institute for Learning and Memory, has received a Glenn Foundation Award to continue research into the biological mechanisms of aging.

The Glenn Foundation awards, established in 2007, provide unsolicited funds to researchers investigating the biology of aging. The grants are meant to assist scientists where funding shortages threaten to impede scientific progress. Award recipients are selected from nominees provided by an anonymous scientific advisory committee.

Tsai, who is also the Picower Professor of Neuroscience and a Howard Hughes Medical Institute investigator, was awarded a $60,000 grant from the Glenn Foundation.
