Alzheimer research pilot grants

Oct. 31, 2013

The Indiana Clinical and Translational Sciences Institute, in conjunction with the Indiana Alzheimer Disease Center, has announced a new pilot funding opportunity.

Proposals are sought from investigators who want to develop translational research projects focused on Alzheimer's disease, frontotemporal dementia, or diffuse Lewy body disease as well as other neurodegenerative or vascular dementias. Applications to this program are limited to $25,000 and are for one year in duration.

Applications pertinent to basic mechanisms of memory and cognition in aging are also welcome, as are proposals related to the delivery of aging and dementia relevant health care services. The objective of this pilot grant mechanism is to provide funding that will allow investigators to obtain preliminary data that will likely lead to extramural funding or generate novel intellectual property (IP). Requests are limited to $25,000 and project periods are typically one year in duration.

Faculty from IU, Purdue, and Notre Dame are eligible to apply.  See the program guidelines for detailed eligibility criteria.

Applications for this grant have been extended to 5 p.m., Monday, Dec. 16. More on this program and access to the application are available online. Log in using your institutional username and password. Application insturctions are under "Alzheimer's Research Pilot Grant Program - 2013.11 (ARP)."
