Pilot funding from Oregon Alzheimer Disease Center, LOIs due Oct. 15

The Oregon Alzheimer Disease Center (OADC) seeks applications for its pilot project program, which provides $25,000 to $30,000 to promote basic or clinical biomedical, translational, epidemiological, caregiving, educational or behavioral research on Alzheimer’s disease, other dementias, and normal brain aging. The funding is intended for the development of preliminary data for future applications for independent research support.

This award is ideal for postdoctoral fellows or junior faculty, but may also be awarded to more senior investigators who are new to Alzheimer’s research or who want to try a new hypothesis, method, or approach that is not an extension of ongoing Alzheimer’s research.

Letters of Intent are due October 15. If invited, the full application will be due November 11, 2013. Visit the OADC website to download the application.
