My wife and I both in academic field are 40 and 37. We are interested in applying but were surprised about the age limit. Can you please let us know if there is a possibility for applying. As you well know, anybody in the medical field will never be independent enough to develop their own "out of the box" ideas by that age. Now that we have reach some level of independence and we can challenge the status quo, we find hard to get funding to develop our ideas. Hence, we will like to ask if the age limit is a hard line or if it has been consider to extend this restriction to older people.
