are invited for funds to support a pilot project on interdisciplinary
research related to Alzheimer's Disease at a level of up to $20,000/year.
This one-year grant will support pilot research on the etiology,
pathogenesis, diagnosis or management of dementia of the Alzheimer's
type or related conditions. The purpose is to assist faculty in
the Engineering, Physical, and Computational Sciences to
obtain 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. The grant,
jointly funded by the IME and the Department of Pathology and
Laboratory Medicine, will be administered through the Alzheimer's
Disease Center (ADC), at Penn (Dr. John Trojanowski, director).
grant is complementary to two additional Pilot grant opportunities
