Award to a USA extramural researcher proposing a new study on Alzheimer's disease. Eligible projects are those with the potential for advancing a new understanding of neurodegenerative disorders, with a focus on the potential relationship with Alzheimer's disease. The research proposed should be an innovative direction of study for the applicant’s lab with the potential for high impact on the field. Pilot studies that can lead to more conventional funding are preferred, to focus the Foundation’s support on new rather than existing research.

The Broad Extramural Award is a two-year grant totaling $125,000 each year for non-Duke Faculty. The awardee will also be invited to present their research at Duke as part of the Ruth K. Broad Seminar Series in Neurobiology and Disease.
