Research on Informal and Formal Caregiving for Alzheimer's Disease (R01, R21 Clinical Trial Optional)
This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) invites applications for basic and translational research on caregiving for individuals with Alzheimer’s disease (AD), at the individual, family, community, and population level. The scope of this funding opportunity includes support for applications that propose the following: interventions to reduce caregiver burden and improve patient outcomes across various settings; population- and community-based research on the scope and impact of AD caregiving; improved characterization of informal and formal caregiving and the burden of caregiving across the full spectrum of the disease, including differences among socioeconomic, racial/ethnic and geographic sub-populations; and research addressing the unique challenges related to the provision of advanced AD care, including disparities in access to care.
Although this funding opportunity uses the R01 grant mechanism, it runs in parallel with a program announcement of identical scientific scope, PAR-18-179, which uses the R21 grant mechanism.
