This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) invites applications seeking to develop novel, transformative artificial intelligence/machine learning (AI/ML) strategies, and computer automation, to integrate, extract, and interpret multi-omic (i.e., genome, epigenome, transcriptome, proteome, metabolome, microbiome, phenome) data sets from human exceptional longevity (EL) cohorts and multiple non-human species that display wide variation in life span and decipher the relationships between DNA, RNA, proteins, metabolites, and other cell variables, as well as links to disease risks and exceptionally healthy aging. The investigative team(s) for this FOA is/are expected to be multi-disciplinary, encompassing expertise in AI/ML and a variety of disciplines, including, but not limited to, aging biology, comparative biology, and bio/chemo informatics. This FOA utilizes the National Institutes of Health's Phased Innovation Award (R21/R33) funding mechanism. During the R21 phase, investigative teams will design and develop intelligent and innovative algorithms and novel AI/ML based computational strategies. During the R33 phase, teams will apply the developed AI/ML tools to complex, heterogenous multi-omic data sets from exceptional healthy aging human cohorts and non-human species to discover novel protective molecular factors that influence EL, and to develop translational strategies on omic based therapeutic target(s) to prevent, or delay, age-related diseases, including Alzheimers disease (AD) and AD-related dementia (ADRD), and enhance human health span.
