Professors Tara McKay and Lauren Gaydosh receive the 2020 Discovery Grant for the Vanderbilt Social Networks and Policy Study Saliva DNA Collection.

This program will fund the collection of buccal cells suitable for the extraction of DNA from participants in the Vanderbilt University Social Networks and Policy Study (VU-SNAPS). VUSNAPS is an NIA-funded panel study of the effects of social networks and policy context on health among older LGBTQ adults living in and around Nashville, TN, Birmingham and Montgomery, AL, and Raleigh-Durham, NC. These samples will be used to measure DNA methylation and construct a measure of biological aging.
