STATEMENT OF SOLIDARITY

With the Black Lives Matter Movement 

The Stress Measurement Network stands in solidarity with the Black Lives Matter movement and the protests of the murders of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, Rayshard Brooks, and so many other Black lives that have been taken by police violence. We also recognize that their deaths are a part of a system of long-standing structural and institutional racism, supported by hundreds of years of white supremacy in the United States. The injustice, inequality, and pain experienced by Black individuals are at the root of the stark racial disparities in health and well-being in America. Racism in all of its many, toxic forms is built so deeply into our nation’s history and culture that it is often invisible to those who benefit from it.

TELOMERE RESEARCH NETWORK

Request for Proposals - Apply Now!

The National Institute on Environmental Sciences and National Institute of Aging have funded a new Telomere Measurement Network. In 2020, 2021 and 2022, we will support up to five projects that address scientific gaps in relation to telomere length as it applies to epidemiological research.  The projects can include secondary analyses of large samples (>300) that examine novel questions about the relation between TL and health and/or TL and exposure.
