Oregon Partnership for Alzheimer’s Research Grant, applications due Mar. 5

The Oregon Partnership for Alzheimer’s Research (OPAR) has announced its 2013 Research Grant request for proposals, and is calling for investigators to submit proposals for one-year projects of up to $30,000. The OPAR anticipates funding three grants this cycle. Proposals are due March 5, 2013.

Applications will be accepted from investigators in Oregon who are launching their careers, are established researchers exploring new areas of investigation, or, with appropriate mentoring, are doctoral level students. Applications will be considered from graduate students, fellows, and junior investigators for clinical, basic, or social science research projects.

Created by the Oregon legislature and affirmed by the Oregon taxpayers, the Oregon Income Tax Charitable Check-off Program is determined to better the lives of Oregonians through the support of new and innovative research related to dementia. This research granting program is organized by OPAR, but administered through the Layton Aging & Alzheimer’s Disease Center at OHSU.
