The Oregon Alzheimer Disease Center (part of OHSU’s Layton Center) seeks proposals for pilot projects that promote basic or clinical biomedical, epidemiological, caregiving, educational or behavioral research on Alzheimer disease, other dementias and normal brain aging. The funding will provide $30,000 to develop preliminary data sufficient to provide the basis for an application for independent research support through other granting mechanisms.
The program is designed for postdoctoral or junior faculty level investigators, but grants may be awarded to a more senior investigator who has experience in areas other than Alzheimer’s disease research, and who wants to work in the Alzheimer’s disease research field or who wants to try a new hypothesis, method, or approach that is not an extension of ongoing Alzheimer’s disease research.
Applications for this award are due at noon on December 1, 2010. For more information or to apply, visit the Oregon Alzheimer Disease Center’s website.
