Funding opportunity for pilot studies on Alzheimer's Disease or Precision Medicine
Jul 21, 2020
The NIMHD Center of Excellence in American Indian and Alaska Native Health Disparities Alzheimer’s Disease/Related Dementias (ADRD) and Precision Medicine (PM) provides funding to support pilot and feasibility projects related to ADRD and/or PM research in Native populations.
We are seeking to provide funding for Early Stage Investigators to support secondary analyses that can answer important questions related to ADRD and/or PM research in Native communities. The Center looks to fund innovative Pilot Studies with meaningful implications for personalizing the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of cognitive impairment, dementia, and Alzheimer's Disease in American Indian and Alaska Native communities.
We are excited to fund our next round of pilot project awards and encourage you to share this opportunity with your networks.
