Grants to USA and Territories, Canada, and International researchers at nonprofit organizations and institutions for research on Alzheimer's disease. Funding is intended to support innovative biomedical research projects devoted to the understanding, prevention, diagnosis, treatment, and cure of Alzheimer's and related dementias.
The BrightFocus Foundation's Alzheimer's Disease Research (ADR) program awards funding for biomedical research projects in fields ranging from molecular biology to genetics to epidemiology. Grants are awarded for basic, translational, and clinically oriented research. The goal of the program is to accelerate our understanding of the biological mechanisms underlying Alzheimer’s Disease and related dementias as well as innovative approaches to discovering the causes of the disease, delaying its progress, and finding treatment methods.
Preference is made for exciting pilot projects that would not, at their present stage, be competitive for large government or industry awards. Typically, these awards are made to early stage investigators, or to more established investigators who are proposing particularly innovative research.
The ADR program offers two types of awards:
Funding may be awarded for drug discovery projects. For further details about drug discovery projects and for eligible expenses, see the FAQs page in Pre-application Information below.
For examples of funded research and breakthroughs, see the links to further Program Information and Funded Research listed in Pre-Application Information below.
