Please Support the Centenarian Study

We are tremendously beholden to the generous families, individuals and Foundations who have made donations to the New England Centenarian Study over the years.

Only 8% of grant applications currently submitted to the National Institute on Aging are currently funded. Thus, it is extremely difficult to obtain funding. Thus, in this difficult economy we are especially hopeful of engaging individuals who are interested in funding some aspect of our studies. If you would like to talk with Dr. Perls about such a possibility, please do not hesitate to contact him (+1 617-638-6688, 617-733-7893 (cell), email:
