I SPEAK as an individual, although the basis of my statement will be a study I have undertaken as Chairman of the Research Committee of the Gerontological Society. The Gerontological Society has been under considerable pressure to petition for the creation of a new institute within the National Institutes of Health, which would be devoted to research in aging. This move has been requested because of presumed prejudice toward grant applications identified as related to aging and because of the failure of the Federal Government to develop a sustained center for stimulating basic research in the field. As Chairman of our Research Committee, I was charged by the Council of the Society to look at this issue.
