Dog Aging Project -> Nominate your dog

The Dog Aging Project is a long-term biological study of aging in dogs, centered at the University of Washington.

The project engages the general public to register their dogs in the studies, and therefore the project is an example of citizen science..... A small subset of those dogs (approximately 500) will be enrolled in a double-blind, placebo-controlled study of the pharmaceutical rapamycin, which has shown signs of extending longevity in species such as mice.
