The purpose of this FOA is to encourage cross-disciplinary research to investigate the mechanisms underlying age-related declines in neuromuscular junctions (NMJs) as a functional unit of nerve and muscle, and explore potential avenues for maintaining the NMJs during aging or reversing the age-dependent loss in function of the NMJs using model organisms.
