This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) 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 for either RFA-AG-15-002 Alzheimer's Disease Research Center (P50) or RFA-AG-15-001 Alzheimer's Disease Core Center (P30), but not both grant mechanisms.
The NIA intends to commit approximately $24 million in FY 2015 to fund 12 grants in response to this FOA. New applications may request a budget for direct costs of up to $1 million per year. Renewal applications may request direct costs for all cores (both required and optional), and the other listed functions, i.e., projects, satellites, and pilot grants at a level not exceeding the combined direct costs of all funded activities awarded during the final year of the present funding period plus a 3% increase, or $1 million per year, whichever is larger.
