Fig1: NSFC grant supports to aging research in China since 1986

Mentions: Research on aging and related diseases in China has received significant support from the National Natural Science Foundation of China (NSFC), the Ministry of Science and Technology of China (MOST), the National Health and Family Planning Commission of China (NHFPC), and local departments over the last decades. NSFC has supported approximately 55 million of US dollars on aging research over the past decade (Fig. 1). The supporting mechanisms vary, including general program, key program, and international joint-program, etc. In the NSFC-CIHR Health Research Cooperation Program in 2009, an aging, geriatric medicine and gerontology research scheme was established separately for the research on body flexibility and aging, cognitive damage and aging. In 2013, the NHFPC and the National Working Commission on Aging jointly issued the China’s Elderly Health Guide aimed at promoting healthy lifestyles, strengthening disease prevention, and improving the life quality and health of the elderly ones. The severity and fast development of population aging, the health care and social insurance problems have become increasingly prominent in China. It has been an important strategic demand and developmental deployment during China’s 12th and 13th Five-Year Plan period. To better promote the health and sustainable development of aging research in China, the Department of Health Sciences, Department of Life Sciences and Policy Bureau of NSFC jointly held the 102th Shuangqing Forum entitled “Key Scientific Issues of Aging Translational Medical Research”, and nearly 50 experts and scholars from more than 30 universities and research institutes at home and abroad attended the forum to discuss national strategies in aging and related diseases. With the aggravation of population aging and the government’s constant seeking of the countermeasures, and for the needs of the society, aging and anti-aging research have become an elevating trend in the society, the academia, science, and technology circle, as well as the service industries. A number of aging-related research laboratories, centers, and research institutions have been established in different cities, sharing research tasks of universities, local governments and the central government. Certain achievements have been made in the aging and age-related disease research, and further development and more breakthroughs on human anti-aging research may be on the way.Figure 1
