Unveiling the secrets of a long life

Do you have patients who come from a line of long livers? If so, and you are based in Boston, New York and Pittsburgh, the NIH wants to hear from you.

The agency is embarking on a study to discover why some people live longer than others.

Researchers in those three fine cities are looking for families with two or more healthy siblings who have lived to old age and can be interviewed in person. Participants will have blood drawn and physical tests done.

Contact information is available here, if you think you know folks who might qualify.
