American Federation for Aging Research

Since 2012, the American Federation for Aging Research (AFAR) has partnered with the Arthritis National Research Foundation to support an arthritis project related to the aging process. Founded in 1981, AFAR has championed the cause and supported the funding of science in healthier aging and age-related medicine. To address the shortage of physicians and researchers dedicated to the science of healthier aging, AFAR funds physicians and scientists probing the fundamental mechanisms of aging, as well as specific diseases associated with aging populations.
