The Province Lab and an international team of researchers won a five-year, $68 million NIH grant to study the genetic basis of exceptional human longevity. Principal investigator Michael Province, Ph.D., Professor in the Department of Genetics at Washington University School of Medicine, said Washington University will serve as the data-coordinating, omics, and analysis center for the project. Collaborators include four field sites at Boston University, the University of Pittsburgh, Columbia University, and the University of Southern Denmark; a blood lab at the University of Minnesota; and additional analysis sites at the University of Maryland and Duke University.
