Alzheimer’s Disease Research Center — Call for Developmental Project Proposals
Funding Period: April 1, 2020 to March 31, 2021
Introduction: One of the research missions of the Alzheimer’s Disease Research Center (ADRC) at the University of Pittsburgh is to fund developmental projects to stimulate new and innovative research relevant to Alzheimer’s disease. Types of research can range from basic science to psychosocial in methodology, with particular attention given to novel approaches. Proposed research may involve humans, other animals or in vitro studies. Investigators interested in clinical trials should consider applying through the NIA Alzheimer’s Disease Pilot Clinical Trails FOA. The investigator is responsible for obtaining appropriate Institutional Review Board or Animal Care and Use Committee approval for the proposal. The patient population, clinical, neuropathological and neuroimaging databases of the ADRC are available resources for approved proposals. Additional resources include the database from the National Alzheimer Coordinating Center (NACC). Applications must clearly state the significance and innovation of the proposed research to Alzheimer’s disease or related disorders.
