New proposals or initiatives for biomedical, epidemiological, behavioral, legal, ethical, health systems or other research in Alzheimer's disease are encouraged. Two NIH-funded proposals for $25,000 in direct costs for 1-year, non-renewable studies will be awarded.
The Pilot Grant funding mechanism is intended to support new investigators from other fields eager to bring their research expertise to bear on Alzheimer's disease, as well as feasibility testing of new drug and management approaches. Pilot study support is not intended for large undertakings by established investigators, or to enhance ongoing research projects.
