The National Academy of Medicine (NAM) will accept applications for the NAM Healthy Longevity Catalyst Awards from January 13 through February 242020, through the website of the American Federation for Aging Research.

Individuals and teams residing in the United States are invited to submit 2-page applications detailing bold, innovative, and potentially transformative ideas to improve the mental, physical, and social well-being of people as they age. The competition is open to innovators from all backgrounds, and ideas may focus on any stage of life, as long as they ultimately promote health as people age.

In addition to the $50,000 cash prize, awards include travel to the 2021 Innovator Summit in Washington, DC, where awardees will network with policy makers, potential investors, and fellow innovators from around the world.


Join the global movement to extend the human healthspan by accelerating research, innovation, and entrepreneurism.


The NAM Healthy Longevity Catalyst Awards are part of the Healthy Longevity Global Competition. Launched in October 2019 by the NAM and global collaborators representing over 40 countries and territories, the goal of this multiyear, multi-million-dollar international competition is to accelerate breakthroughs in healthy longevity through a series of monetary awards and prizes. Ultimately, one or more Grand Prizes of up to $5 million will be awarded for the achievement of a transformative innovation. 
 
The NAM Healthy Longevity Catalyst Awards are funded by Johnson & Johnson Innovation (JJI). Awardees will be considered for additional support from JJI in later phases of the competition.

DEADLINE: February 24, 2020
