Grant opportunities

The Layton Center offers several pilot grant programs for new investigators or more experienced investigators who have novel ideas that may advance Alzheimer's research.


Pilot research awards

We have three pilot research awards, the Oregon Alzheimer's Disease Center (OADC) Pilot Program, the ORCASTRAIT Roybal Center Pilot Study Program and the Oregon Partnership for Alzheimer's Research (OPAR) grant.

Funds for the OPAR grant have been made available by Oregonians through the Oregon Income Tax Charitable Checkoff Program.
