Researchers want to study your pup.

Researchers are looking for 10,000 pet pooches. Why? They want to watch them grow old. They’re hoping it’ll shed light on human longevity. They are testing a pill with the hope of slowing aging process.

The goal of the Dog Aging Project is to understand how genes, lifestyle, and environment influence aging. We want to use that information to help pets and people increase healthspan, the period of life spent free from disease.

If you’re interested in volunteering your pup, there’s a website for the Dog Aging Project.
