Alzheimer's Disease Research Programs
BrightFocus provides research funds for U.S. domestic as well as internationalresearchers pursuing pioneering research leading to greater understanding, prevention, and treatment of Alzheimer's disease.
The goal of the program is to accelerate advances in fundamental and translational research on Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias to understand the mechanisms underlying the etiology and pathogenesis as well as innovative approaches to better diagnose, prevent or delay the progress of the disease. Preference is made for exciting pilot projects that would not, at their present stage, be competitive for large government or industry awards. Typically, these awards are made to early stage investigators, or to more established investigators who are proposing particularly innovative research.
Deadline: Nov. 1, 2021
