Deadline extended: Michigan Alzheimer’s Disease Center 2019 Pilot Project Program competition
The Michigan Alzheimer’s Disease Center 2019 Pilot Project Program competition deadline has been extended to Jan. 31.
“Kick starter” research pilot project funds ($35,000 in direct costs) to investigators in all departments at U-M (U-M), Michigan State University (MSU), Wayne State University (WSU) and Veteran Affairs Ann Arbor Health System (VAAAHS) are available to test new ideas about the causes and treatment of dementing disorders.
As it seeks to understand and cure Alzheimer’ disease (AD) and related dementias, the MADC considers it among its highest priorities to support innovative, high impact research. The MADC Pilot Project Program is partially supported by the NIH-funded Alzheimer’s Disease Center (ADC) linking U-M, MSU and WSU. The ADC’s central theme focuses on identifying, understanding and modulating the numerous non-amyloid factors that contribute to brain dysfunction and neurodegeneration.
The proposed research must be relevant to Alzheimer’s disease and/or non-?-amyloid related dementias.
Applications should be submitted through the U-M Medical School Office of Research Competition Space portal.
