The National Institute on Aging (NIA) invites applications from qualified institutions for support of Alzheimer's Disease Research Centers (ADRCs). These centers are designed to support and conduct research on Alzheimer's disease (AD), to serve as shared research resources that will facilitate research in AD and related disorders, distinguish them from the processes of normal brain aging and mild cognitive impairment (MCI), provide a platform for training, collect biospecimens useful for clinical research, develop novel techniques and methodologies, and translate these research findings into better diagnostic, prevention, treatment and care strategies.
Only one application per institution is allowed.
The NIA intends to commit approximately $10 million (total costs) in FY 2013 to fund 4-6 new and/or renewal grants in response to this FOA. New applications should request a project period of five years and a budget for direct costs of up to $1 million per year. Cost sharing is not required.
