Fellowship FAQs

Frequently Asked Questions

Who should apply?

Visionaries. Investigators. Builders. Whether you're a seasoned investigator, have just wrapped your postdoc, or are about to defend your PhD thesis, if your work aims to develop transformative therapeutics, devices, or diagnostics around aging and age-related diseases, we welcome you to apply.

When should I apply?

We encourage you to apply as soon as you have compelling data. Though we prefer to review peer-reviewed, published work, we are also open to reviewing pre-prints, conference posters, and even raw data readouts.

Will I receive monetary compensation?

Yes, you will receive $200,000 during the course of your fellowship period. However, we will not invest the entire amount upfront as we will require reserves to cover any financial costs incurred during the tech transfer process (e.g. legal fees).

Select teams may receive additional support in the form of a non-dilutive grant or to fund an additional validation study with one of our many CRO partners. These will be evaluated and awarded on a case-by-case basis.

Will you own my IP?

No. We will not own any of your IP.

Will I need to quit or drop out of school?

No. We want you to continue the technical and commercial development of your research at your institution. However, at the end of your fellowship year, should you decide to move forward with raising external capital, we would expect you to focus on building full-time.

What will be my expected time commitment?

While there is no strict time commitment, we'd estimate ~5-10 hours per week, depending on programming.

Do I need a team to apply?

No. You can apply solo or with your co-founder(s). If you have co-founder(s), make sure to note this somewhere in your application. Regardless, we will help you recruit your founding team.

Is there an application deadline?

No. We accept applications on a rolling basis. However, we are limited in the number of teams we are able to work with at any given time.

Do I need to have a clear business plan in mind before applying?

No. We will work with you alongside our network of industry veterans to incorporate your company, validate the market opportunity, set product development and fundraising milestones, select appropriate CRO partners, refine your FDA strategy, and crystallize your go-to-market, along with all other aspects of your business.

Will you take equity in my company?

Yes. We will take ~10% equity. However, the exact terms will be determined at the end of your fellowship year as we prepare to help you raise external capital.
