Alzheimer's Disease Core Center
University of Pennsylvania, NIH-funded, ADCC in the Center for
Neurodegenerative Disease Research Center (CNDR) will fund two
pilot projects on biomedical, epidemiological or behavioral research
in basic science or clinical areas each at a level of up to $20,000/year.
These one-year, non-renewable grants support pilot research projects
on the etiology, pathogenesis, diagnosis or management of dementia
of the Alzheimer's type or related conditions. The purpose is
to assist faculty in obtaining preliminary data to serve as the
basis of a grant application to the NIH or other public or private
agencies concerned with this important medical and social problem
(see the CNDR website: www.med.upenn.edu/cndr/ADCCPilot.html).
A committee will review the proposals and funding depends not
only on scientific merit, but also on the likelihood that the
pilots will lead to independent investigator initiated proposals.
Priority will be given to:
in the early stages of their career who seek to enter the Alzheimer's
Disease research arena
faculty who intend to shift their research emphasis towards
should utilize the NIH PHS 398 form with a limit of 5 pages (exclusive
of literature cited). Please find application submission details
on the CNDR website. The application submission deadline is April
1, 2002 and questions may be directed to Gayle Viale, staff
assistant, Center for Neurodegenerative Disease Research (CNDR),
phone (215) 662-4708 or e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org.
