   There are a lot of such claims in Russia and the main problem is to
verify these cases of fantastic longevity. We have developed a research
project in our Center on this topic under the title:

THE SEARCH AND VERIFICATION FOR THE CASES OF EXTREME LONGEVITY IN RUSSIA

The cost of the project is about $40,000 and that is not much compared
with NIH grants. We would appreciate any support for this project from
any organization or private person as well as assistance in contacting
the potential sponsors.

   Sincerely yours,

P.S.: By the way, you will be surprised to know that my Russian colleagues
are working now for longevity project in USA !  For more information see:
