Successful applicants may receive funding up to US$50,000 for a period of 12 months. The 2021 cycle of Healthy Longevity Catalyst Awards (Hong Kong) will be open for submission from 1 March 2021 (12:00 AM, HKT) to 12 April 2021 (11:59 PM, HKT).

Who should apply:

Healthy Longevity Catalyst Awards seek innovative approaches from any discipline that aim to extend the human healthspan, especially approaches that challenge existing paradigms or propose new methodologies or concepts.
